Episode 241 — Elisa Gabbert


Elisa Gabbert is the guest. Her new book, The Self Unstable, is now available from Black Ocean.

Teju Cole, writing for The New Yorker, says

I found Elisa Gabbert’s The Self Unstable a wonderful surprise. It was the most intelligent and most intriguing thing I’ve read in a while, moving between lyric poetry, aphorism, and memoir, and with thoughts worth stealing on just about every page.

And Make Magazine says

Gabbert strikes a perfect balance between heart and head, between cleverness and earnestness, between language that demonstrates its own fallibility and language that is surprisingly, perfectly precise.

Monologue topics: the insufferably stupid anti-sunglasses stance of my early twenties, squinting.
