Race, religion, sexuality, otherness... these are all topics for discussion in the life of writer Carla Rachel Sameth.
And discuss them she does, in the book One Day on the Gold Line: A Memoir in Essays. The Gold Line is a light-rail line in Los Angeles, where Carla was a single Jewish lesbian raising an African-American son.
The highs and lows of her non-traditional life are reflected in the book's essays.
Carla Sameth visits to talk about her life and her work.
