Author Stephanie Danler dials in from lockdown in Los Angeles to tell us about the troubled family history that inspired her memoir “Stray”. From the insidious nature of addiction to her attempts to forge her own path far from home, Danler reflects on the experiences and relationships that brought her back to the California of her childhood. We then discuss the life lessons learned while working at restaurants in New York and how that chapter of her life became the inspiration for the best-selling novel and TV series “Sweetbitter”.
