Tales Of A Nazi-Occupied British Isle In 'Guernsey'

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is set after World War II and follows a London writer who becomes enthralled with the stories of Nazi occupation of the island of Guernsey, off the British coast. The book was written by Mary Ann Shaffer, who died before she could complete it. Shaffer had asked her niece, Annie Barrows, to help finish the novel after she died.

Barrows talks with Deborah Amos.
