Last month Northwest Book Lovers published a piece about Lidia Yuknavitch‘s forthcoming memoir, The Chronology of Water, and everything that goes into getting a new book onto the shelf at your bookstore. In the story we alluded to a brewing cover controversy with the book. That story was cute. The one written[…]by Vuknavitch for The Rumpus is as smart as a thesis.
“Let me tell you why I became insistent about the cover. My memoir is, at its heart, about how I survived the life I was dealt, kind of like we all do. The central and enduring metaphor that holds the story together is swimming. And the central site of meaning in this story I have told about making a self from the ruins of a life is a body. A real body.”
Read “About a Boob.” Salute the smarty women.
