In conversation with Jia Tolentino, New Yorker staff writer and author of Trick Mirror: Reflections on Self-Delusion

“Feminist, frequently funny, unflinchingly honest and often scathing” (Salon), activist, historian, and author Rebecca Solnit’s more than 20 books include A Field Guide to Getting LostWanderlust: A History of Walking, and Men Explain Things to Me. Her many honors include two NEA fellowships for literature, the Kirkus Prize for Nonfiction, and—for her book River of Shadows: Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West—a Guggenheim, the National Book Critics Circle Award in Criticism, and Harvard’s Mark Lynton History Prize. A memoir set against the backdrop of a 1980s San Francisco rife with gender violence and trauma, Recollections of My Nonexistence paints a portrait of a young artist finding her voice through writing, relationships, and punk rock.
