Episode 101: Kristen Radtke on Writing From the Heart

Listen to Kristen Radtke HERE.

Kristen Radtke masters a mode of storytelling that’s uniquely her own in her graphic memoir, “Imagine Wanting Only This.” Eerily-haunting, her book explores how certain special people touch and shape our lives, and why we’re sometimes attracted to places (and people) in various states of ruin and unraveling. This genre-smashing novel (and our pod conversation) never shies away from the big questions: Why are we here, and what will we leave behind?

Enjoy this show!
