Debbie Millman | Audio

Carmen Maria Machado

If you like fairy tales and myths, this book is for you. If you like horror and science fiction, ditto. The same book has got you covered. If you like experimental fiction, queer theory, and luminous storytelling, well, you’re in luck. My guest today is the author, Carmen Maria Machado, and her book, Her Body and Other Parties, has been nominated for the National Book Award for fiction.

Debbie talks to Carmen Maria Machado about her writing, life, career, and the importance of ego. “It’s an essential element to being an artist because otherwise what are you doing?” You have to have that investment in it.”
