Lionel Shriver spoke about her book, Big Brother, at Politics & Prose on Tuesday, June 11, 2013.
Shriver’s sharp, satiric fiction has tackled complex, even terrifying, issues from health care to terrorism to school shootings. Her twelfth novel is a story of family, consumption, and ultimatums, centering on Pandora, who loves to cook; her husband, a compulsive exerciser who no longer eats as much as he used to; and Pandora’s once-svelte, now obese, pianist brother, who comes to visit and won’t leave.
