74: Amelia Gray & “Nicotine”

When Amelia Gray stops by the Damn Library, Christopher turns a drink blue again, and they discuss her new book, Isadora. Particularly: what it was like to write a book about a dancer during a time when she wasn’t dancing. A quote about dancing is misattributed. Plus, we get into Nell Zink’s fearlessness in her novel, Nicotine, about activists and squat housing.

Also: Amelia Gray starts an exquisite corpse in our iTunes reviews.
