So cool

So cool that my interview with the writer Martha Toll about Her Own Vietnam was one of the top 5 posts last month in the Washington Independent Review of Books. Here’s how they describe it:

“Martha Anne Toll conducted a thoughtful Q&A with Kanter, one that touched on everything from women warriors’ emotional scars to the rise of feminist presses.”

Here’s the interview, in case you missed it.

Damn, they’re good
