Kate and Medaya are joined by feminist critic Jacqueline Rose to discuss her new book, On Violence  and On Violence Against Women. Rose addresses the prevalence and persistence of violence through the analytical lenses of feminism, history, psychoanalysis, politics, and literature. She argues that violence in our time thrives on a kind of mental blindness, and elucidates its relationship to the rise of politicians like Bolsonaro and Trump.

Also, Larissa Pham, author of the collection Pop Song: Adventures in Art and Intimacy, returns to recommend Annie Ernaux’s 2016 memoir A Girl’s Story, which was released last year in Alison L. Strayer’s translation.
