FROM THIS EPISODE

Lynne Tillman's American Genius: A Comedy (Soft Skull), is a haunting novel that takes the form of an obsessive's monologue -- consciousness masks pain; first-person narrative conceals repression. We discuss how a culminating breakthrough -- a brief insight -- illuminates the book's whole structure.
