Inkandescent Radio Gets the Skinny From Bestselling Author Adriana Trigiani

“I don’t know how Adriana Trigiani goes into her family’s attic and emerges with these amazing stories, I’m just happy she does,” says bestselling author Kathryn Stockett of Trigiani’s newest release, “The Shoemaker’s Wife.” “If you are meeting her for the first time, get ready for a lifelong love affair.”

That endorsement from the author of “The Help” is typical of the buzz around Trigiani’s epic tale of Ciro Lazzari and Enza Ravanelli—the fictional characters who depict the real lives of her grandparents and their sweeping international love affair.

We had the opportunity to interview Trigiani when she was our Truly Amazing Woman in December 2012, so it was great fun to interview her again for the Inkandescent Radio Network.

In this podcast interview we discuss:

  • What life is like as a bestselling author
  • Where she gets her story ideas from
  • What it was like to be a writer for “The Cosby Show”
  • Life as the wife of the award-winning lighting director of “Late Night With David Letterman”
  • And what’s next for this prolific writer of more than a dozen books
