Galantière: The Lost Generation's Forgotten Man - Mark Lurie

My latest podcast is up on the New Books Network website! In it I interview Mark I. Lurie about his biography of the writer Lewis Galantière, who was a member of the "Lost Generation" circle of authors in Paris in the 1920s and who went on to find success as a translator before finishing his career as president of American PEN. Enjoy!
