In June of last year, author Melissa Duclos published an essay in English Kills Review, called “Breaking Up With My Book.” In it, she describes the process of what it means to leave a book behind, and how we need to change the way we talk about a project that might never see an audience. In this episode, Duclos and host Rachel Carter discuss the article and the emotional process that goes hand-in-hand with writing a novel. Duclos writes both fiction and nonfiction, and her work has appeared in Salon, Electric Literature and Bustle.
