In conversation with Nomi Eve, author of Henna House and The Family Orchard, Director of the Creative Writing MFA program, Drexel University.

Melissa Broder is the author of The Pisces, a darkly erotic yet tender tale of academia, break-ups, and compulsive merman love. She is also the author of an essay collection, So Sad Today, and four collections of poetry. Her poems have appeared in a multitude of publications, including Tin House and Guernica, and she is the recipient of a Pushcart Prize. Following a calorie-obsessed lapsed Jew who falls under the spell of a zaftig Orthodox frozen yogurt store employee, Broder’s new novel is a “sensuous and delightfully delirious tale” (O, The Oprah Magazine) of variously forbidden appetites.
