On After Philomela: A History of Women Whose Tongues Have Been Ripped Out

Check out the play "If We Were Birds" by Erin Shields if you can find a copy of it. Interesting re-telling of the Philomela/Procne story with a lot of choral speech, and the playwright builds some strong connections to survivors of wartime violence and rape.

On No Epiphanies Whatsoever

@professorsnootypants I totally agree. There's something about the feeling of being caught up in the centre of it all, with no view to getting out, that I find so fascinating. It's a perspective on addiction that we rarely see, or maybe we too often look away because it's so damn ugly.

On No Epiphanies Whatsoever

@Porn Peddler Agree to a certain extent re: privilege. We spend a lot of time and energy on Cat Marnell because she's beautiful/skinny/white/rich and there's a sortof sick fascination with watching someone for whom life could be so easy screw it all up. But let's not forget that addiction is a real-live mental illness, right? Which doesn't stop for privilege.
