Shannon and Sara talk all things motherhood and advocacy from this best-selling novel by Celeste Ng. Spoiler alert! We dive deep into the details of how motherhood is constructed in our society--what it means to be a mother, biological and otherwise, and the way women are defined by these relationships. We also take a moment to explore how the book compares to the hit Hulu original television show and what you can read into both of these very different mediums.
You've heard us gush about Celeste Ng's masterful way of depicting families, communities, and the complicated dynamics that propel them all to inevitable(?) consequences. Now hear us debate which of her books are "better," and get all of our wild predictions about Ng's next book. If we're right, send us a prize. And don't forget to visit our bookshop to get your copy (of Celeste Ng's books or any of the books we've talked about, or even just mentioned).--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/midlit/support

J’ai découvert Celeste Ng avec La saison des feux, son dernier roman, et je n’avais qu’une hâte : retrouver son écriture, ses sujets de prédilection, la construction magistrale de ses récits, les secrets qu’elle distille avec brio. Alors début 2021, j’ai acheté son premier roman, intitulé Tout ce qu’on ne s’est jamais dit. La couverture d’un bleu océan est mouchetée d’étoiles et traversée à la nage par une femme. Le titre l’emplit de ses lettres capitales. Je n’avais qu’une envie : y plonger !Get bonus content on Patreon Voir Acast.com/privacy pour les informations sur la vie privée et l'opt-out.
