Episode 273 — Juliet Escoria


Juliet Escoria is the guest. Her new story collection, Black Cloud, is now available from Civil Coping Mechanisms.

Adam Wilson says

Juliet Escoria is like a gutter-punk Grace Paley.

And Benjamin Samuel, co-editor of Electric Literature, says

Reading the stories in Black Cloud is like getting punched in the throat; Juliet Escoria leaves you speechless. Her honesty teaches us that beauty can be found in violence, truth in pain, and life where we’ve always been afraid to look.

Monologue: travel, American Airlines, family, fatigue, weddings.
