Episode 608-With GennaRose Nethercott

On December 26, 2023, in Podcast, by Patrick Hester

Fifty Beasts to Break Your Heart by GennaRose NethercottThis week, Patrick and Tracy welcome GennaRose Nethercott, author of Fifty Beasts to Break Your Heart (and other stories).

About Fifty Beasts to Break Your Heart (and other stories): The stories in Fifty Beasts to Break Your Heart are about the abomination that resides within us all. That churning, clawing, ravenous yearning: the hunger to be held, and seen, and known. And the terror, too: to be loved too well, or not enough, or for long enough. To be laid bare before your sweetheart, to their horror. To be recognized as the monstrous thing you are.

In these lush, strange, beautifully written stories, GennaRose Nethercott explores human longing in all its diamond-dark facets to create a collection that will redefine what you see as a beast, and make you beg to have your heart broken.

About GennaRose Nethercott: GENNAROSE NETHERCOTT is the author of a novel, Thistlefoot, and a book length poem, The Lumberjack’s Dove—selected by Louise Glück as a winner of the National Poetry Series.

A proud member of the Grim & Mild team, she helps create the podcasts Lore and Harlots—the latter of which she also hosts. When she isn’t touring nationally and internationally performing strange tales (sometimes with puppets in tow), she lives in the woodlands of Vermont, beside an old cemetery.
