Philipp Meyer: Author of American Rust

 

It just so happens that Philipp Meyer grew up in Hampden, the same neighborhood in Baltimore where our offices and studios are.  He stopped by for an interview while he was in town on the book tour for his first novel, American Rust.  It's 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.  Listen to the interview here.
