In his new memoir Lot Six, David Adjmi tells the story of how he found himself through art and the theater, growing up feeling like an outsider as a gay, atheist, artistic youth in an insular Syrian Sephardic Jewish community in Brooklyn. In this episode, David and I discussed the craft of memoir, the process of constructing one's identity, and why his book isn't structured like the typical gay narrative. Then in the second segment, we discussed how the pandemic is affecting our ability to make narratives.
