"The History of Us"

Leah Stewart teaches creative writing at the University of Cincinnati and is a successful novelist with her books Husband and Wife, and The Myth of You and Me receiving critical acclaim. Her newest book, The History of Us, based here in Cincinnati, is out and she joins Mark Perzel to discuss her writing and her newest novel.

Pretty much every spirit known to man begins life as some sort of plant: sake began with a grain of rice; scotch emerged from barley; tequila from agave; rum from sugarcane; and bourbon from corn. In The Drunken Botanist, Amy Stewart explores how humans have, through ingenuity, inspiration, and sheer desperation, contrived to transform all matter of plant life into alcohol over the centuries. She’s with Mark Perzel this morning for a little liquor education.
