Constructing a Nervous System: A Memoir
Pulitzer Prize-winning author and New York Times theater critic Margo Jefferson declares, “‘We tell ourselves stories in order to live,’ “ said Joan Didion. “We do, and we always will. But what about the queries, quandaries, sounds and sensations, chains of chains of thought and feeling that evade or even refuse traditional storytelling? Constructing a Nervous System is a temperamental autobiography. I wanted to be their simultaneous translator, fusing criticism with memoir.”
Join Foster Hirsch for an in-depth interview with Jefferson, who reveals how she utilizes the disciplines of poetry, song, and performance in her arts writing, while looks to history and psychology to write about life.
