Episode 605: The Coode Street Advent Calendar: Alix E. Harrow
The Coode Street Podcast
The Advent Calendar rolls on as we move through the holidays towards year's end. Today Jonathan calls up good friend of the podcast and all-round wonderful person Alix E. Harrow to talk about what she's been reading (lots!), what she'd recommend (also lots!), if she has any favourite holiday reads (yes!), and what she had out this year (the hopefully not-the-last-but-almost-certainly-the-last instalment in the Fractured Fables series, A Mirror Mended) and has coming up (a new novel!). As always, our thanks to Alix for making time to talk to us. We hope you enjoy the episode.
Fantasy, Science Fiction and Journeying into the Past with Alix E. Harrow
It’s Lit! [Unabridged]
Breaking down the fantasy genre and how its roots in an often Western vision of “the past” has been slowly changing with Afro-Futurism and more mainstream BIPOC actors. Unabridged is made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Democracy demands wisdom.
A SPINDLE SPLINTERED by Alix E. Harrow, read by Amy Landon
Behind the Mic with AudioFile Magazine
Amy Landon’s lively narration unites present-day Ohio and Perceforest, a fairy-tale realm, in Alix. E Harrow’s immersive reimagining. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss this novella that explores the Sleeping Beauty story from the perspective of Zinnia Gray, a chronically ill 21-year-old who has been given “weeks, not months” to live. On her birthday, Zinnia is transported into a world resembling one of her beloved Sleeping Beauty stories. The story is told through Zinnia’s perspective, and listeners absorb her sense of urgency as she and the Princess Primrose venture out into the fairy-tale world to change their fates.Read the full review of the audiobook on AudioFile’s website.
