Local author Kimberly Harrington has a new book of essays out that takes an honest look at her marriage ... and her plans to get divorced. Excerpts from it have recently been published in the New York Times and The New Yorker.

This hour, we talk to Harrington about moving to the Burlington area with her husband more than two decades ago and watching their relationship shift with time.

We also hear about her pandemic experiences and her complicated relationship with Vermont.
