Jacqueline E. Luckett on "Searching for Tina Turner"


The guest is Jacqueline E. Luckett, author of "Searching for Tina Turner."

In the novel Lena Harrison Spencer is in her mid-fifties, and the time has come for her to face the hard truths of what it means to have it all and still find oneself unfulfilled. When Lena determines that what she needs is the strength to change directions, Tina Turner becomes the icon from whose story she derives strength, even as everyone else tells her she's crazy for giving up her cashmere cocoon.
