58: Megan Abbott & “Deep Water”

Other than this sentence, not a single reference to Valentine’s Day is in this podcast. Megan Abbott stops by the Damn Library with her newest novel, You Will Know Me. We discuss prodigies and the grit of teenage gymnasts, and then dismount the pommel horse into the quarry of Patricia Highsmith’s slow burn suburban thriller, Deep Water. Drinks are consumed, dark jokes abound.
