big hurt

Author Erika Schickel sits down with her contemporary, Book and Film Globe contributor Ayun Halliday, to discuss Erika’s latest memoir, The Big Hurt, a harrowing, hilarious reckoning of her years as a self-defined bad girl, particularly as pertains to her disastrous entanglements with two older me–a controlling (and thinly-disguised) celebrity author and a teacher at the progressive boarding school that her parents bundled her off to as a young teen. A must-listen for anyone who hit puberty prior to the Age of Consent, and an education for those who emerged into it.
