Penguin Podcast

This week on the Penguin Podcast, Susan Vreeland talks about her latest book, Luncheon of the Boating Party, in which she returns with a vivid exploration of one of the most beloved Renoir paintings in the world. Narrated by Renoir and seven of the models and using settings in Paris and on the Seine, Vreeland illuminates the gusto, hedonism, and art of the era. In the podcast, Vreeland discusses how this particular Renoir painting inspired her writing and stresses the importance of art in the world today.
