Jean Kyoung Frazier‘s book about a pregnant pizza delivery girl is hilarious. Even though Frazier never intended for Pizza Girl to have a wry sense of dark comedy sprinkled onto it, her natural funniness came through page after page. Don’t get me wrong: the novel is dark. It follows a delivery girl who becomes infatuated with a married client. The result is a perfectly balances insight into the young woman that Frazier says she couldn’t have written a year before she finally started and might not be able to write now.

Adam Vitcavage is joined by Jean Kyoung Frazier to talk about her debut book Pizza Girl. The two discuss pickles on pizza, basketball, and baking soda. Oh, and a little bit about how Frazier crafted such a hilarious yet dark novel about sexuality and desire.
