Here’s another panel recording from my summer book tour! This one took place at 826 Valencia’s Pirate Supply Store in San Francisco, and features some powerful conversations about vulnerability in the current media climate, mentorship and self-doubt, and the commodification of personal narratives. Thanks to Rose Eveleth (@flashforwardpod), Molly MacLeod (@mollyampersand), and Bobbie Johnso...

Friends who love you and have warmth for your creative life are the very best suns in the world. When a woman, like the Little Match Girl, has no friends she also becomes frozen by anguish, and sometimes by anger as well. Even if one has friends, those friends may not be suns. They may give comfort instead of informing the woman about her increasingly frozen circumstances. They comfort her—bu...

Mellow Monday

Mellow Monday

“The Slavery of the 9 to 5″ by Charles Bukowski

8-12-86 Hello John: Thanks for the good letter. I don’t think it hurts, sometimes, to remember where you came from. You know the places where I came from. Even the people who try to write about that or make films about it, they don’t get it right. They call it “9 to 5."
