Anthems for a Book Tour

Tonight I’ll be standing in a room of people and, for all I know, the only thing they’ll know about me is that I’m the woman wrote that one book, the one about getting kidnapped and raped by a man I used to love.

Us Conductors: An Excerpt

I was Leon Termen before I was Dr Theremin, and before I was Leon, I was Lev Sergeyvich. The instrument that is now known as a theremin could as easily have been called a leon, a lyova, a sergeyvich. It could have been called a clara, after its greatest player.

Tin House Reels: Bianca Stone

Epitaph in Reverse, today’s feature from Bianca Stone, includes the sort of artistic play that shows the author’s permissive relationship to her own creative mind. There is an elasticity to Stone’s process- she lets ink drops bleed, invites smudging, and whitewashes sections of her drawings for an explicit redo. “Since I end up eviscerating the […]

Should I choose something terrifying, like the one that said (simply) “I Love You” inside a Ninja Turtle heart? Certainly not “Cowabunga, You’re Neat,” which would go to […]
