Episode 257 – With Ilana C. Myer

On December 22, 2015, in Podcast, by Patrick Hester

In episode 257 of the Functional Nerds Podcast, Patrick Hester and John Anealio chat with author Ilana C. Myer.

About Ilana:

LastSongBeforeNightIlana C. Myer has written for the Globe and Mail, the Los Angeles Review of Books, Salon, and the Huffington Post. Previously she was a freelance journalist in Jerusalem for the Jerusalem Post, the Jewish Daily Forward, Time Out Israel and other publications. She lives in New York City. Since learning to read, Ilana had decided she would write books, but during college in New York City was confronted with the reality of making rent, and worked as a receptionist, administrative assistant, and executive assistant where she on occasion picked up dry cleaning. She afterwards found more fulfillment as a journalist in Jerusalem where she covered social issues, the arts, and innovations in technology, and co-founded the Middle East environment blog, Green Prophet. It was during these years in Jerusalem, on stolen time, that Last Song Before Night took shape.

This week we didn’t do picks – we did three of our favorite books we read in 2015. So here are those lists.
