Weekend Edition: 'Best Thing' Would be Equality
Jennifer Weiner writes what is often referred to as women’s fiction. But that term is imperfect for a lot of reasons. And so, we’ll just refer to her as the author of multiple best-sellers. Weiner’s written a bunch of hits, like “Good in Bed,” and “In Her Shoes,” which became a hit movie starring Cameron Diaz. She also created and ran the ABC Family television series “State of Georgia.” In her free time, she live tweets the “Bachelorette.” Her latest novel, “The Next Best Thing,” draws on her TV experience. It’s about a young woman who moves to L.A. and creates her own sitcom - with mixed results.
