Alan Swyer talks about his new novel, The Beard. We discuss integrity in the workplace, the importance of living a full life, and the correlation between his documentary filmmaking and fiction writing.
In The Beard, a working class Jersey Boy tries to find his identity in Los Angeles. Coming to intern at a highly competitive internet company based in Santa Monica, he and the other interns grovel at the feet of multimillionaires in the hopes of moving up the food chain.
Katerina Cozias interviews Alan.
