Pop Culture Powerhouses


“I can only hope that the criticism and reporting that you do write leaves little levers open psychologically for something good to happen.” Jia Tolentino speaks about the inner conflict of writing on pop culture in the current political climate in this conversation with fellow nonfiction writers Taffy Brodesser-Akner, Linda Holmes, and Emily Nussbaum. Tolentino’s debut essay collection, Trick Mirror (Random House, 2019), is featured in Page One in the September/October issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.

The Future of Books


“The questions that I try to answer in the book, through fiction, are questions about people I knew when I was a child…I made up the answers because I could not access the real answers.” In this Entertainment Weekly video, De’Shawn Charles Winslow, author of the debut novel, In West Mills (Bloomsbury, 2019), speaks with fellow debut authors Taffy Brodesser-Akner, Sarah M. Broom, Linda Holmes, and Lisa Taddeo about the inspiration and evolution of their books. Winslow is featured in “First Fiction 2019” in the July/August issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.
