110: Leanne Shapton (GUESTBOOK: GHOST STORIES) & Miriam Toews’ WOMEN TALKING

Leanne Shapton drops by the Damn Library for a spook-filled episode to discuss her new collection, Guestbook: Ghost Stories. Christmas wrapping paper, first stage appearances, tennis, and being haunted all get some airtime along with lots of other segues and divergences (including the first recorded dip into the Damn Library), plus everyone gets rapturous about Miriam Toews’ weighty and excellent new novel, Women Talking.
