Play now

Michael Cohen, Trump’s infamous fixer, was just released from prison to home confinement. Jess Walter, author of the international bestseller Beautiful Ruins, imagines Cohen’s life in the slammer: betterment, celebrity, and the cellmate down the hall—The Sitch from Jersey Shore. And what about that tell-all memoir in progress?  
Jess Walter is the author of six novels, including the New York Times bestseller Beautiful Ruins and Citizen Vince, which won the Edgar Allan Poe Award. His new novel, The Cold Millions, will be published in October. 
Narrated by Oliver Wyman. Hosted by Ashley C. Ford.
