By Leslie Lindsay I was so impressed and in awe this wise and moving book, MOTHERS, FATHERS, & OTHERS (Simon & Schuster, December 2021), that I reached out to the brilliant and generous Siri Hustvedt about an interview. To my delight, she agreed and we chatted about all things art and writing, and cover art, persistence, and so much more. It was a really lovely conversation. Come on over, and join us. This interview originally appeared in The Rumpus February 21, 2022. It was even featured on Publisher’s Lunch February 23 and 24! After nearly a decade of bringing great authors and their books right here, every Wednesday, I am shifting my focus a bit.

Keep scrolling to learn more: Memoir-on-Submission: MODEL HOME: Motherhood, Madness & Memory is ‘making the rounds’ with publishing houses. This book has been in my heart for years. It’s about my mother’s devolve into psychosis when I was 10; the body, mind, houses and homes (she was an interior decorator), our estrangement, breaking the cycle, her suicide, my complex grief. It’s time for this story to make its way into the world.
