In this week’s episode Iris finds love and marriage. In a whirlwind romance when two people are ready to have serious conversations so they can begin the rest of their lives together, Iris’s story is one of hope and opportunity.

Iris Smyles is the author of the novels Iris Has Free Time (which Forbes called “an instant classic… a smart, funny, wise, and sometimes heartbreaking book about a slowly fizzling love affair with youth,”), Dating Tips for the Unemployed (a semi-finalist for the Thurber Prize for American Humor), and, most recently, Droll Tales (“Delightfully weird” – Splice Today). Her stories, essays, and poems have appeared in The Atlantic, The New Yorker, The New York Times, Vogue, Paris Review Daily, BOMB, The Baffler, and Best American Travel Writing among other publications. Born and raised in New York, she currently lives in Great Britain and Greece.
