Episode 167 — Tupelo Hassman

   

Tupelo Hassman is the guest. Her debut novel, Girlchild, has just been published in paperback by Picador.

The New York Times raves

A voice as fresh as hers is so rare that at times I caught myself cheering. . . .I’d go anywhere with this writer.

And The Boston Globe says

So fresh, original, and funny you’ll be in awe… Tupelo Hassman has created a character you’ll never forget. Rory Dawn Hendrix of the Calle has as precocious and endearing a voice as Holden Caulfield of Central Park.

Monologue topics: the Internet, Fiona Apple, going crazy, the world is bullshit.
