First, Connie Schultz of the Cleveland Plain Dealer joins Bob to discuss the news of the week. Then, writer Paula McLain combines fact and fiction in The Paris Wife, a historical novel about Hadley Richardson, the first wife of American writer Ernest Hemingway.
Then, in this week’s installment of our ongoing series This I Believe, we hear the essay of Elise Forier Edie. She is a professional playwright, a teacher and also an addict. In her essay, Edie writes frankly about the realities of addiction and recovery. She says that through all the changes in her life, her addiction remains. Each day, she fights a careful, methodical battle against her addiction, trimming her life into manageable moments. [Broadcast Date: March 4, 2011]
