92: Hannah Pittard (VISIBLE EMPIRE) & Ralph Ellison’s INVISIBLE MAN

Hannah Pittard drops back into the Damn Library after writing and editing and publishing an entire new novel called Visible Empire! While drinking a cocktail featuring guava and egg white, she and the guys get way into 1962, how you need to make sure your ex knows where you got your ideas from, and how you should always kill the dog, amongst other topics. They also all discuss Ralph Ellison’s classic novel Invisible Man, and how the speeches are excellent, it’s devastating, but there’s also nice parts.
