Azareen Van der Vliet Oloomi joins co-hosts Eric Newman, Kate Wolf, and Medaya Ocher to discuss her novel, Call Me Zebra, released to universal praise this past month. In his review for the Los Angeles Review of Books, Nathan Scott McNamara describes how Zebra, “the precocious narrator, a self-proclaimed “connoisseur of literature … is unvaryingly brilliant and deadpan funny… the smartest narrator you will encounter this year.” Through her travels, tragedies, romance, and voracious reading of canonical literature, this book of ideas captures the “the experience of exile, deftly threading the narrative with theory while also using theory to pull the reader in.” In conversation with Azareen, we learn about a young author ambitious enough to take all this on and produce a captivating work of literature.
