Topic: Pittsburgh's "non-profit ecosystem" and using the Mon-Fayette Expressway as setting for a novel

Guest: Jacob Bacharach

How Discussed: Jacob Bacharach's "The Doorposts of Your Houses and On Your Gates" is a novel exploring two generations of familial dysfunction, set against the backdrop of the construction of the Mon-Fayette Expressway. What about the highway's construction made it such a fertile setting for fiction? Why should Mon Valley residents be concerned about development decisions are made? How does the fictional story in "Doorposts" have parallels with the real-life effort by Allegheny County to recruit Amazon to build a "second headquarters" in the Mon Valley?
