Episode 409: Stephanie Feldman

Leave a comment

We’re joined by Stephanie Feldman–author, most recently, of the novel Saturnalia (The Unnammed Press, 2022)–who introduces us to a funny, and surprisingly moving short story about a fictional New Jersey cryptid, Walkdog. The story, by Sofia Samatar, takes the form of a student research paper, but as it progresses we realize it’s less about the cryptid in question than about the paper writer’s secret relationship with a boy everyone in school makes fun of for being a nerd.

You can learn more about Stephanie’s novel here:
