Life After Hormones And Blood Sugar Go Beserk
Tim Anderson grew up in north Raleigh as a gay, sugar-obsessed teenager.
At age 15, a month after he started to acknowledge his sexuality, he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. His new memoir Sweet Tooth (Lake Union Publishing/2014) interweaves stories about coming of age and coming out; it uses humor and post-punk music references to portray his reluctant struggle to maintain control over his diabetes diagnosis.
Guest host Phoebe Judge talks to Anderson about his life and writing.
