Episode 7 Hilary Mantel "The Long QT"

A story from the author of the best-sellers Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies and her most recent, the controversial and often wicked short story collection The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher, in which we found the story you are about to hear. “The Long QT” features a standard, modern-day dilemma that delivers an entirely unexpected sort of fright at the end. Host Aparna Nancherla chats with champion open water swimmer, Lynne Cox, a real life survivor of the disorder Mantel's story is based upon.
