White Magic, Difficult Fruit, and the Witch of Eye
Join three wonderful authors as they discuss their wonderful new nonfiction books!
ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
"[A] glorious mash-up of memoir, love note, and cookbook. . . Every sentence is as sensuous as the first bite into a cold, juicy plum."—Hillary Kelly, Vulture
"[A] dazzling, thorny new essay collection."—Samin Nosrat, The New York Times
This amazingly wise and nimble collection investigates the horrors inflicted on so-called "witches" of the past. The Witch of Eye unearths salves, potions, and spells meant to heal, yet interpreted by inquisitors as evidence of evil. The author describes torture and forced confessions alongside accounts of gentleness of legendary midwives.
“White Magic is magnificent.” —Kristen Arnett
Bracingly honest and powerfully affecting, White Magic establishes Elissa Washuta as one of our best living essayists.
