Ep. 137: Amy Poeppel on Binge Writing Books with Heart and Humor

Amy Poeppel is back on the podcast to discuss The Sweet Spot, a big-hearted, delightful novel about three women who form an accidental sorority in Greenwich village when a baby lands on their collective doorstep.




“The Sweet Spot sparkles with Amy Poeppel’s signature wit and warmth. This genuinely uproarious novel celebrates families – born and made – in all their messy glory. It’s so much fun, you’ll wish you could pull up a chair at the kitchen table and stay forever. (Though you might need to remove a feral gerbil from that chair first.)”-Laura Hankin, author of A SPECIAL PLACE FOR WOMEN
