Description
Julie Orringer discusses her book, “How to Breathe Underwater.” She begins by explaining how she gradually wrote this collection of short stories over the span of several years. She provides background information on her Jewish upbringing and how the stories that she writes often incorporate Jewish Orthodoxy. She discusses her childhood and how she moved around the country, lost her mother to cancer, and cared for her two younger siblings. She talks about how the stories in “How to Breathe Underwater” explore the minds of children and the mother-daughter relationship. Orringer ends the interview with a discussion of loss and her teaching at Stanford.
