We are Lavender Lit Club, a queer book review podcast hosted by Julie Arhelger and Jillian Kurashima. Every month we discuss a book written by queer authors or that takes on LGBT+ themes and features queer and diverse characters. We'll delve into it all: scifi and speculative fiction, thrillers and mystery, poetry and nonfiction, classic novels and emerging writers. Welcome to the club!
In the fifth episode of Lavender Lit Club we review a collection of speculative fiction by Carmen Maria Machado, Her Body and Other Parties. The stories in this collection blend well genre fiction and queer themes, and stand out against toxic masculinity, gender inequality, that long standing oppressive trope of the mad woman in the attic. The science fiction and horror elements make these stories a fun read, and the female characters make them powerful. We really enjoyed this collection and hope you do too.
