Welcome to Night Vale's Joseph Fink & Meg Bashwiner talked with Night Vale co-creator Jeffrey Cranor about their unique memoir, in which each author writes without consulting the other, revealing how marriage is not just a couple but also two individuals, each experiencing and remembering their life a little bit differently than the other.

The First Ten Years by Joseph Fink & Meg BashwinerJeffrey Cranor

Joseph Fink and Meg Bashwiner met in 2009. New to New York City from the West Coast, Joseph is juggling odd jobs to pay for rent while volunteering at a theater company in the East Village so he could snag free tickets to their shows. Meg, an aspiring performer & playwright, lives with her parents just outside the city, working a desk job and commuting to her internship at the same East Village theater company.  Both in their early twenties, trying to figure out the landscape of the city and their place in the world, Joseph and Meg meet when they both find themselves selling tickets in a cramped box office. They quickly became friends and within a year they are a couple. Within five years they are touring the world and performing on some of the world’s greatest and not so great stages. Over a decade, they experience the best and worst parts of life - the death of a father, the high and low points of marriage, international fame, world tours, mental illness, and discussions about having children.

Jeffrey Cranor is an author, playwright, and podcaster. He co-writes the podcasts Welcome to Night Vale and Within the Wires. He lives in the Hudson Valley.
