About this reading:
In this installment of Bad Mouth, I read a chapter of my memoir manuscript, a manuscript that I will start shopping around this summer. The chapter doubles as a standalone memoir essay, and it was first published in Hayden’s Ferry Review a couple of years back. This is the first time I read “The Performance” out loud. What I realized after reading this essay is that it’s easier to write the word pussy instead of saying the word pussy out loud. I almost cracked up a couple of times while reading this. I hope you enjoy my memoir essay.
