Call in to speak with the host


In today's segment of About the Books, Kate Sullivan interviews author Tarashea Nesbit. Her new book, "The Wives of Los Alamos," is a debut novel that explores the hidden side of scientific and collateral damage that happened when the United States joined the nuclear arms race for dominance. The atomic age created disasters throughout the world. But the quiet disasters—the ones which affected families in Los Alamos—portrayed in this evocative new novel are remarkable.
