She discusses her inspiration to make the revolution irresistible.

Exclusive Interview With Raechel Anne Jolie, Author of the New "Rust Belt Femme"

Rated LGBT Radio

Our exclusive interview with author Raechel Anne Jolie!  Her new book Rust Belt Femme is launching now!RUST BELT FEMME by Raechel Anne Jolie is a beautifully written memoir that addresses working class poverty in Northeast Ohio, identity, the saving grace of music, and the universality of the human condition. With shades of Sarah Smarsh, Michelle Tea, and Nico Walker, it has been called a compulsive read – something about the way Jolie writes just keeps you intrigued, and before you know it, you’ve read the whole thing in one siting!“I am offering this story of a queer Midwestern life to you in these pieces and parts, like spirits who materialize in the shadows when they are feeling restless and forgotten There is no way to make entirely coherent a life that is more assemblage than intersections, an existence that weaves in and out of time and space. But I think you’ll be able to follow along, because whether our neurology is burdened by trauma or not, I think most of us who are drawn to memoir are burdened with an incurable case of nostalgia.”—from Rust Belt Femme by Raechel Anne JolieWith co-host Brody Levesque
