Alex Sheshunoff is a disarmingly funny, Faulkner Society award winning writer who has been featured in Slate, National Geographic Adventure, and Marketplace on NPR. In this episode, he talks with John about A Beginner's Guide to Paradise, his memoir (from Penguin Random House). He explains the process of transitioning out of the wildly successful NY-based start-up whiz kid life that he didn't want into the role of adventurer and author. He talks us through some of the things that make him human: curiosity, risk, love, mischief, kids, and questions that don't have answers.
