Professor's “Good Daughter” Makes its Mark

“The Good Daughter,” the memoir by Washington and Lee English professor Jasmin Darznik, has been receiving considerable attention around the country and the world since its release in January.

On Feb. 27, the book appeared on the New York Times’ list of best-selling e-book nonfiction, and in recent weeks, Jasmin has given lectures literally from coast to coast. She stopped in Los Angeles, where she spoke at UCLA, her undergraduate alma mater, and swung by Princeton, N.J., where she received her Ph.D. at Princeton University. The latter appearance, at Labyrinth Books, consisted of a conversation between Darznik and Princeton English professor William Gleason.

She also appeared on the “Diane Rehm Show” on National Public Radio. And, most recently, she was on “HDNet World Report.” You can read a transcript of that interview in its entirety here and watch a clip from the show below. The entire program is also available through iTunes.
