Two author interviews wrapped up in one episode!
First, Ashley interviews Tess Gerritsen about her novel, Listen to Me, the latest in the Rizzoli & Isles novel series. The conversation includes Tess’ work as an anthropology undergraduate student and as a physician, writing women in power, how she writes victims and survivors, and adapting her story for television. This conversation includes discussion of victims of death and blood.
In the second segment, Mariquita talks with Sarah Thankam Mathews about her debut novel, All This Could Be Different. They also talk about how vulnerability and interdependence make us stronger, why the bildungsroman needs to be redefined, and how queer sex scenes can reclaim power.
