On this episode of Inquiry, our guest is an actor, writer, and stand-up comedian AUTUMN CHIKLIS. Her first novel concerns a brilliant young graduate from Columbia who because of financial circumstances has to move back in with her parents, a classic Southern Californian well-to-do family. Needless to say, it does not go well. It’s a bit like Jane Austen but with juice cleanses and pampered pugs. Autumn Chiklis’ novel is: SMOTHERED: SOMETIMES ENTERING THE “REAL WORLD” MEANS MOVING IN WITH YOUR PARENTS.
