    LadyFiction #3: NoViolet Bulawayo's We Need New Names

    This episode of LadyFiction discusses Zimbabwean author NoViolet
    Bulawayo’s “We Need New Names” (2013), a novel about a young girl who

    of “American Gypsy: A Memoir” (2012).

    LadyFiction #10: (Re)reading Little Women for the Holiday Season

    This episode features Stefanie Schäfer and her guest Amanda Halter discussing
    their experiences in reading Louisa May Alcott's 1868/9 classic. We talk
    about Jo's meanings as tomboy and archetype of white womenhood,
    domesticity and nostalgia, and female authorship, touching also on Great
    Gerwig's 2019 film version--and finally, we wonder why Little Women
    continues to gather, as Anne Boyd Rioux and others have contended, a
    predominantly female readership.

    LadyFiction #9: The American Home in Flames: Art vs. Motherhood in Little Fires Everywhere

    Do women have to choose between life as an artist and being a mother? That’s what the story boils (or burns!) down to in Celeste Ng’s 2017 novel (and in the eponymous Hulu Series) Little Fires Everywhere. In this episode, Stefanie Schäfer and her guest Julia Faisst discuss the implications and repercussions of this conflict—and on the side, they connect the abyss between itinerant freedom and the comforts of white settlement to the 2008 economic crisis, to adoption and white privilege, and to the iconicity of the American home in contemporary culture.
