  Host Ed Goldberg interviews Sara Gruen, author of Ape House, a satire on science, media, protest, and the relationship with our closest non-human cousins. The novel was inspired by the bonobos and scientific research at Great Ape Trust in Des Moines.

Sara Gruen lives with her husband and three children in an environmentalist community outside of Chicago. An award-winning technical writer, she made her fiction debut in 2004 with RIDING LESSONS, followed by FLYING CHANGES. WATER FOR ELEPHANTS is her third novel.
