Meghan Daum

Fiction, Essays and Articles

Interviewed by: Angela Elam

Catalog Number: 20060301, 20050126

Social satirist and X Generation writer Meghan Daum talks about her critically acclaimed collection of essays, My Misspent Youth, and her novel, The Quality of Life Report. Daum escaped the fast-paced lifestyle of a New York magazine editor to move to Lincoln, Nebraska-—an experience which became the basis of her novel. She talks about the importance of the essay, and explores the complicated relationship between perceived truth and reality, and the differences between creative nonfiction and memoir.
