Leslie Jamison - Make It Scream, Make It Burn: Essays

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, September 25, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

With The Empathy Exams and The Recovering—her deeply considered studies of suffering and addiction—Jamison proved herself a writer as compassionate as she is fearless. In the fourteen wide-ranging essays of her new collection, she employs a mix of memoir, criticism, and journalism to examine themes of memory and connection. Writing with her signature intellectual and emotional honesty, Jamison explores the war-scarred Sri Lankan landscape, the whale known as 52 Blue, the citizens of the online world Second Life, and a museum of the ephemera of relationships, as well as reflecting on her own past romances, marriage, motherhood, and step-motherhood.
