Rated: Explicit

Gael Gilliland, founder of The Legacy Recorder

Guest Gael Gilliland, found of The Legacy Recorder

Winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize, this gripping novel centers around a mole in the Vietnamese army. The story follows his journey after he flees Vietnam. The book  is often funny, sometimes horrifying, and always clever.

Gerald and Anais were joined by Gael Gilliland. She is the founder of The Legacy Recorder (www.thelegacyrecorder.com) which  helps people preserve their favorite moments and wisdom for generations to come. The Legacy Recorder works with both individuals and assisted living facilities to help preserve individual’s life stories.

If she looks familiar, that’s because Gael had previously joined our weekly show for a discussion of The Kitchen Child by Angela Carter. 

We’d love to hear from you
