Sarah Glazer asks why this feminist novelist doesn’t translate well to America

"I'd definitely agree.  I remember watching the Benny Hill Show back in the day, let's say versus In Living Color and The Simpsons, it's all different.  I think it only makes sense that what we find funny is related to what…"
