We’re diving deep into our September issue this week, listeners, with a reading from Two Cities author Carla McGill of her poem “Uncertainties.” Then we discuss the dark and challenging books we’re reading this week: Louise Erdrich’s The Round House and Emma Cline’s The Girls. Have you read either book? Do you have strong feelings about what makes dark subject matter so rewarding to read?
Be sure to check out our current issue, full of wonderful new work! We’ll be highlighting other pieces from the issue in episodes to come.
