Writer’s Voice with Francesca Rheannon
When we make first contact with aliens, will we meet the challenge with wisdom—or with violence? We talk with Ray Nayler about his novel of speculative fiction, “The Mountain and The Sea.” It was named by Slate Book Review as one of the Best Books of 2022.
Then, we remember Victor Navasky, the long-time editor of the Nation magazine. He died January 24 at the age of 90. We listen back to my 2006 interview with him about his memoir, “A Matter of Opinion.”
