Description
Lynette Brasfield discusses her book, “Nature Lessons.” She begins by talking about how her novel is a mix between a mystery and a memoir. She describes what it was like growing up in South Africa and how her mother was constantly paranoid that the government was spying on their house. She talks about the social differences and stereotypes that occur among racial groups in South Africa. She discusses how she allowed her character to go back to South Africa in the book, but she herself never could go back after she left. Martinson ends the interview by asking Brasfield to read a passage from the book about childhood friendships.
