In memory of acclaimed author Evan S. Connell, who passed away on January 10, 2013, New Letters on the Air brings you this 1991 interview by former New Letters on the Air host, Rebekah Presson. The author of 19 works, Connell is best known for his character, Mrs. Bridge, a Kansas City socialite in his novel of the same name. After writing the sequel, the two books became the film Mr. and Mrs. Bridge. In this interview Connell talks about that as well as his novel The Alchymist's Journal.

Listen here until February 6, 2013.

New Letters on the Air, public radio's longest-running literary program, is a half-hour program that is produced by New Letters magazine at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
