Okay, so maybe Rachel Yoder isn’t all those things Meredith Brooks sang about in 1997, but she is a brilliant writer.
Her debut novel Nightbitch, which was published after many years of trials and tribulations in the publishing industry, is a weird, wild, and pitch perfect book. It’s the type of book that knocks you out on every page.
It’s about a mother who may or may not turn into a dog every night. It’s about so much more, but I’ll leave the elevator pitch at that.
She joined the podcast to talk about motherhood, what it means to be a writer when you haven’t published in years, and adapting her own book into a screenplay for a movie that Amy Adams is attached to.
