The Nice Thing About Strangers is a collection of very short non-fiction stories from Paige Erickson’s years of travel. Stories about precocious children, four minute bus romances, awkward conversations in broken languages, and myriad ordinary encounters on the sides of interstates and streets populate the pages of this book. A Public Affair host Karma Chavez talks with her about the strangers who surround us.
