Rebecca Watson to Discuss Her Debut Novel LITTLE SCRATCH via Zoom (8/13)
Rebecca Watson, author of LITTLE SCRATCH (Doubleday), will share thoughts about her debut novel during a virtual event moderated by Kathryn Scanlan, hosted by Solid State Books, via Zoom on Thursday, August 13 at 7:00 pm (ET).
Fiercely moving and slyly profound, LITTLE SCRATCH is a defiantly playful look at how our minds function in–and survive–the darkest moments.
Relayed in interweaving columns that chart the feedback loop of memory, the senses, and modern distractions with wit and precision, our narrator becomes increasingly anxious as the day moves on: Is she overusing the heart emoji? Isn’t drinking eight glasses of water a day supposed to fix everything? Why is the etiquette of the women’s bathroom so fraught? How does she define rape? And why can’t she stop scratching?
Rebecca Watson writes for publications including The Financial Times, The Times Literary Supplement, and Granta. In 2018 she was short-listed for the White Review Short Story Prize.
