“The side sleeper’s name is Russell Mark—not that it matters, not to Christyna, who hardly ever uses her own last name. Usually she goes with Everett, or Johnston, or sometimes Johns. Christyna Johns. She likes the way it sounds. That is her name tonight and the past four nights.”

The new Joyland Retro is here! …And don’t you think Brian could be a hand model?
On this podcast author and editor at The New Yorker Ben Greenman talks about why his new novel, The Slippage, is his most personal yet.
If there’s one word that can describe Ben Greenman’s fiction style it is “play.” His writing is a game that always invites the reader in whether he’s writing a story using charts, adapting Chekhov to star Paris Hilton or, as Ben does in his new novel The Slippage, telling a story of a suburban husband tasked with building a house by his wife. The Slippage, as Ben reveals to Truth & Fiction, is an important, personal turn. Ben and our producer Brian Joseph Davis also spoke about fake writer identities, life after being book critics, and why everyone can agree on Tootsie. The interview was recorded in Ben’s dining room last month and his two sons were so graciously quiet they were rewarded with being interviewed at the end.
