Marin County author Joyce Maynard's latest novel, "After Her," is loosely based on the case of the Trailside Killer, the serial murderer and rapist who targeted female hikers in the Bay Area between 1979 and 1981. We'll talk to Maynard about the book and about her romantic relationship with J.D. Salinger, which she discusses in a controversial new documentary about the "Catcher in the Rye" author.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Joyce Maynard, author of 15 books, including "After Her," "To Die For" and the bestselling memoir, "At Home in the World"
