This Podcast (and Chapbook) Will Change Your Life, Episode Thirty-Nine - The Beauties.

There is podcast and the killer Lauryn Allison Lewis. And There is "The Beauties," Lewis' self-bound, all unique and Kingfisher lovely chapbook, soon to be a novel playing in a bookstore near you, that finds a way to mash together both the story of woman, violence, marriage, mothering, all of it, all-powerful and diffuse, and the stories of three generations of women as well, in ways both old-fashioned, call it the vibe, and contemporary, with its commentary on machines and technology and transmutations, somehow speculative and looking back at once, signaling we think yet one more direction literature is going, coming, repeating, fiercely and wonderfully as we try to make sense of the world today.
