BROADCAST: Aug. 31, 1966 | DURATION: 00:56:05


Stephen T. Sohmer discusses his first novel, "The Way It Was," a cynical commentary on his generation's struggle to develop stable relationships. In the context of stoic upper-middle-class conservatism, the novel chronicles how discontent can brew into rage beneath the veneer of social expectation.
