Smart Podcast, Trashy Books: 433. Life, Death, Memory, and Immortality: A Conversation with VE Schwab

Amanda and I are talking with VE Schwab, author of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, a book we both enjoyed tremendously. We talk about the 10-year process of writing it and the power of telling an immortality tale about a person who walks through history as a woman. We touch on queerness, achievement, erasure, representation, and also discuss death, loneliness, grief and immortality. About halfway through we take a deep dive into death rituals and experiences with grief and loss, with some specifics at about 42:00-43:00, so be aware if that’s not a topic you can engage with right now. (Take care of you, ok? Thank you.)

On this special Thanksgiving episode we give genuine thanks to Stacey Abrams for her tireless work flipping the state of Georgia oh my freaking god you guys! And if you’d like to thank a black woman for doing a hard grimy job nobody else wanted to do, don’t give her more work to do – give her money! Go buy her books!

No major trigger warnings for this episode except that it’s romantic suspense, so there’s some torture-murder in it. And a lot of instant oatmeal.
