Film Critic Karina Longworth on Q for 1-29-14

--  Journalist SARAH WEINMAN  tells the story of detective novelist Alaric  Hunt, a convicted murderer serving a life sentence in a South Caroline maximum security prison, and the practical and moral difficulties of prison fiction.

-- Film critic KARINA LONGWORTH, author of the new illustrated book "Meryl Streep: Anatomy of an Actor", speaks to the unparalleled career of the 18-time Oscar-nominated actress (and three-time winner). This book is the first lengthy study of the actress as a feminist artist, as Longworth argues that Streep's choice of roles, her process and the results are actually quite radical. She says her body of work functions as a kind of alternative history of the 20th century from a female perspective.
