Hillary Frank is host and creator of the Longest Shortest Time. She is the author of the novels Better Than Running at Night, I Can’t Tell You, and The View from the Top. Her radio work has aired on a variety of public radio programs, including This American Life, Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Studio 360, Marketplace, and Weekend America.
Hillary’s daughter Sasha was born in Februrary 2010. Hillary created the Longest Shortest Time as a bedside companion for parents who want to hear in the middle of the night (or day—what’s the difference, really?) that they are not alone. And that as never-ending as any parenting stage seems, it doesn’t last forever. Non-parents report that the show helps them relate better to their own parents, and to their friends who have kids.
