Beloved author Christos Tsiolkas speaks with Jessie Tu about her debut novel, A Lonely Girl is a Dangerous Thing, a story of female desire and the consequences of wanting too much and never getting it. “As soon as I started reading Jessie Tu’s A Lonely Girl is a Dangerous Thing, it was like a drug rush,” said Christos. “I experienced what all of us who love reading desire: to hear a voice – bold and coherent – that we have not heard before. I was elated.” Enjoy this wide-ranging conversation reflecting on respecting the ones who came before, a shared love of American fiction, writing about anger and the craft of storytelling.
