From The Archives: Philipp Meyer’s ‘American Rust’

American RustFebruary 19, 2016 – Segment 3

We listen back to a special archive edition of The Marc Steiner Show, when I spoke with Baltimore native Philipp Meyer about his novel American Rust, a story set in a small, former steel town in western Pennsylvania, that explores how people’s lives change when stable, middle-class jobs disappear from the place they call home.
