Will this year's census result in a historic undercount?
D.C.-based writer Paul Goldberg is no stranger to non-fiction. And his debut satirical novel – “The Yid” – draws both from history, set in the Stalin-era Soviet Union, and his own personal experience. We talk with Goldberg about the story, how living in D.C. shapes his work and his ‘day job’ overseeing the influential Cancer Letter project.
