By LARB AV – September 7, 2018
Author Porochista Khakpour joins co-hosts Medaya Ocher and Kate Wolf to talk about her new book Sick: A Memoir, which chronicles her struggle with Lyme disease. Porochista discusses how she identified the illness, how it has affected her career and day to day life, and how she navigates the experience of being a young sick woman in contemporary society.
Also, LARB’s Medaya Ocher recommends Ali Smith’s novel Autumn.
