Author Julietta Singh troubles the boundaries that we imagine in and through the body, recuperating it as a porous site marked by flows between the internal and external, the self and others. In a wide-ranging conversation about her new book, No Archive Will Restore You, Singh and hosts Eric Newman, Medaya Ocher, and Kate Wolf touch on gender, sexuality, parenting, and navigating the world in and as a body.

Also, LARB’s Medaya Ocher recommends her favorite short story from this past year, “The Cafe” by Kristen Gleason, which appeared in the Romance Issue of LARB’s Quarterly Journal.
