"It has been made overwhelmingly clear to me now that anything you think is yours by right can vanish, and what you can do about that is nothing at all." So writes New Yorker staff writer Ariel Levy, who built her own successful, but unconventional life, which eventually came crashing down with an affair, a miscarriage during a Mongolian reporting trip and the breakup of her marriage. Levy shares these stories -- and some less painful ones about writing for The New Yorker -- and ponders her future in her new memoir, “The Rules Do Not Apply." Ariel Levy joins us in-studio to discuss her life and work.
