The Queen of Tuesday
The Other Side of Impossible
Darin Strauss’ latest book is a work of historical fiction that posits “What if the author’s grandfather had an affair with Lucille Ball?” The result is a searing romance that examines who Lucille Ball was offscreen, when her marriage was on the rocks and her life was in disarray.
Here, Strauss tells us about three books he returns to again and again. One is a work of historical fiction that inspired his own, another is a modern, tongue-in-cheek novel, and the third is a moving work of nonfiction by Strauss’ wife, Susannah Meadows. Check them out below.
