Episode 265: Eat the Apple Author Matt Young

Matt Young, author of Eat the Apple (out Feb. 27 from Bloomsbury USA), talks to Daniel Ford about his decision to write a memoir about his service with the Marines, his path to publication, and why aspiring writers need to read outside their preferred genres.  

It’s hard to play that ‘what if’ game. I don’t know where I’d be if I hadn’t gone to war. The whole book is a mediation on that ‘what if?’ question.
— Matt Young
