Amanda Bestor-Siegal, THE CARETAKERS: A Novel

Zibby is joined by Amanda Bestor-Siegal to talk about her debut novel, The Caretakers, which was inspired in part by her experience as an au pair in Paris. The two discuss the social politics of being an au pair, why Amanda chose to tell the story from the six female characters' perspectives, and the main things she took away from her MFA. Amanda also shares how the loss of her mother inspired her to travel to Paris in the first place, and what the TV adaption of this novel will likely look like.
