Taylor Jenkins Reid

Malibu Rising is the first novel in the Early Summer 2022 Book Club. Author Taylor Jenkins Reid has written about the glamorous Riva siblings, professional surfers and models who live an enviable life in Malibu, but are all grappling with their own fears and secrets that will spill out at their annual summer party. The novel is set in 1983, often flashing back through the family’s history over the decades. Taylor joins Richard and Judy to talk about how the nature of fame has changed recently, and why we feel entitled to know about the lives of celebrities. She also describes Malibu as she sees it today, yes as a dazzling colony of superstars, but predominantly as a place of unbelievable natural beauty.
