A Special Episode from FBOL

Howdy, Attic Wives and Lit Witches This is a very special bonus episode of FBOL coming your way because I’m asking you for a favor. I don’t get specifically political on here but you all know where my blue flag flies. Donald Trump has slashed the food stamp and SNAP budgets, starting April 1st. In addition to massive cuts that are leaving people without hundreds of needed dollars for food starting in the next two weeks, I’ve also personally seen grocery store and Target runs on necessities. THe prices of goods are going to skyrocket because of Corona Virus fears, and that’s if they’ll be available at all. So what I”m asking is this: please, if you can, donate to your local food bank. If you don’t know where yours is, visit FEEDINGAMERICA.ORG and click on their tab at the top that says FIND A FOOD BANK. There you can search your zip code or any location to find a food bank, pantry, or other organization to donate to. AND PLEASE GIVE MONEY. $25 to my local food bank, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, feeds 100 people. They can stretch a dollar farther than they can a dusty old tin of corn, so PLEASE, count your pennies and give to people who are currently or will be in need. This is a time to come together and help. I’ll have further links and resources on twitter at @FuckboisOfLit Talk to you soon. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/fuckboisoflit/support

The Outsiders - Leslie Gray Streeter

Leslie Gray Streeter (@LeslieStreeter, https://lesliegraystreeter.com/) joins host Emily Edwards to discuss that most prevalent of all YA novels, THE OUTSIDERS by S.E. Hinton.

The Tempest - Samantha Puc

[CW: Rape, assault, gas-lighting, consent, colonialism, murder] Samantha Puc (@theverbalthing) joins host Emily Edwards (@MsEmilyEdwards) to BREAK HER BRAIN around the idea of reliable narration, colonialism as disruption, and the veil of choice in regards to Shakespeare's final play, THE TEMPEST. As it turns out? It ain't about playwriting, folks. THE TEMPEST is a blatantly anti-monarch, anti-colonialism, anti-patriarchy play that was Shakespeare's "curtain call" from London Society and playwriting. What can we glean from his text that'll tell us how he really felt about Queen Elizabeth and English society? --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/fuckboisoflit/support

Too Much: How Victorian Constraints Still Bind Women Today- Rachel Vorona Cote

Rachel Vorona Cote joins host Emily Edwards to talk about her upcoming book TOO MUCH: How Victorian Constraints Still Bind Women Today. A deeply moving combination of memoir and literary research, this book will leave you as breathless as a cinched corset. Rachel and I discuss the concept of "muchness," how we relate to Victorian mores and heroines, and how we can move past the Victorian expectations of race, sexuality, and gender.

Rebecca - Claire Willett

Playwright and author Claire Willett (@ClaireWillett) joins host Emily Edwards (@MsEmilyEdwards) to discuss one of the English language's most popular books– Daphne du Maurier's REBECCA. Since its first publication in 1938, REBECCA has never gone out of print, proving Maxim de Winter, the Second Mrs. de Winter, Mrs. Danvers, and almost every other character in the entire novel to be some of literature's most enduring fuckbois. We take on the text as the emblematic novel of the push-pull of heteronormative patriarchy, discuss the essential factors or race and class, and also ruminate on REBECCA as a queer text, thanks to some new details neither reader knew before recording!This is Fuckbois of Literature. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/fuckboisoflit/support
