Stacey D’Erasmo is the guest. Her new novel, Wonderland, is now available from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

Publishers Weekly, in a starred review, calls it

A spellbinding look into the protagonist’s being… meticulously crafted … Days and shows pass, but within this routine, a transformation slowly creeps into the narrative: that of commitment, and, perhaps, hope for the future.

And Michael Stipe says

The world of Wonderland is authentic, vibrant, and genuine. Stacey D’Erasmo explores the delight and terror of second chances. A great read!

Monologue topics:  heat, Santa Ana winds, climate change, indifference, idiocy, fear.
