Emily Temple on Trippy Fiction and Summer Camps as Cults
This Week on the So Many Damn Books Podcast
We’ve one last guest for the year and it’s our boss, kind of! It’s Emily Temple, Managing Editor of Literary Hub and the author of The Lightness! She levitates over to the Zoom Damn Library where she talks about parentheticals, summer camps as cults (or vice versa), and writing a head trip—only to then bring us Kobo Abe’s strange classic, The Woman in the Dunes, which is a fitting read for these never-ending quarantimes.
