This Friday join The New Inquiry at Book Court to celebrate the release of Kate Zambreno's new memoir in the form of a history of
or is it a history in the form of memoir?the "mad wives of modernism" Heroines from semiotext(e). Kate (the author of the novels O Fallen Angel and Green Girl as well as the blog Frances Farmer is My Sister) will be reading an excerpt from the book before sitting down with TNI contributing editor (and accomplished columnist and author) Laurie Penny for a chat about gender, writing, mental illness, and more. Some audience Q&A will follow. BYOB.
