Leslie Jamison - Make It Scream, Make It Burn


A Sweeping Collection of 14 New Essays, a Book Talk & Signing

Leslie Jamison is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The Recovering and The Empathy Exams. She will discuss and sign Make It Scream, Make It Burn: Essays ($28.00 Little, Brown and Company). With the virtuosic synthesis of memoir, criticism, and journalism for which she has become known, Jamison offers fourteen new essays that are by turns ecstatic, searching, staggering, and wise.

Among Jamison's subjects are 52 Blue, deemed "the loneliest whale in the world;" the eerie past-life memories of children; the devoted citizens of an online world called Second Life; the haunted landscape of the Sri Lankan Civil War; and an entire museum dedicated to the relics of broken relationships.
