Mary Gaitskill: First Reads

Upon publication of her new collection of essays, Somebody with a Little Hammer, Mary Gaitskill takes on a special assignment: to read a work she’s never read before (we’ll announce the title in 2017), then discuss the experience of this literary encounter. “Her brand of brainy lyricism, of acid shot through with grace, is unlike anyone else’s. And it constitutes some of the most incisive writing around,” wrote Meghan O’Rourke.
