Episode 683 of 726 episodes

Gaby Hoffmann grew up in the Chelsea Hotel with her mother, an actress in Andy Warhol's Factory. She appeared in 'Field of Dreams' and other films as child, but says she saw acting as "a means to an end." Hoffmann now stars in the Amazon series 'Transparent.' Ken Tucker reviews Lucy Dacus' debut album, 'No Burden.' Safran Foer's new novel, 'Here I Am,' is told from the points of view of different members of a Jewish family. He says it's about things falling apart — but also about "people trying to mend things." His previous book was 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.'
