E85: Interview with Sarah McCraw Crow author of The Wrong Kind of Woman



“A glorious debut filled with characters grasping to find a place to belong in a world on the edge of change.” ~ Carol Rifka Brunt, bestselling author of Tell the Wolves I’m Home

That quote right there is for THE WRONG KIND OF WOMAN, the debut by Sarah McCraw Crow. Virginia finds herself suddenly widowed one wintry day in the late 1970s, and her world begins to change in completely unexpected ways. A campus novel of sorts, THE WRONG KIND OF WOMAN is a powerful exploration of what a woman can be when what she should be is no longer an option. Sarah created a must listen-to playlist over at Largeheartedboy.com that is an excellent companion piece to the book. We talk about the 1970s in light of the present day in this special interview, thank you so much Sarah!
