125: Helen Phillips (THE NEED) & Samanta Schweblin’s FEVER DREAM

Helen Phillips jumps right into the surreal and strange place that is the Damn Library. She’s well used to it, since she’s the person who wrote The Need, which we all talk about, and its depiction of motherhood, and the weird, and many other vague details that we dance around since we really don’t want to spoil anything. We also talk about Samanta Schweblin’s Fever Dream, which has no baseline of normalcy, and maybe the original title in Spanish makes more sense for it. Get into it.
