Show Notes

We are so excited to discuss Outlawed! We all absolutely loved it, and if you haven't read it, you need to. It's set in the past (and an alternate past) and it still feels very timely. (Bonus sidebar topics include westerns, pandemic life and, as always, a bunch of recommendations.)


Books mentioned in the episode: 

How Much of These Hills is Gold (C Pam Zhang), God Spare the Girls (Kelsey McKinney), Detransition, Baby (Torrey Peters), The Prophets (Robert Jones, Jr.) and The Distance (Hernan Diaz).
