Marisa Silver: Little Nothing

Hosted by

In Marisa Silver's Little Nothing (Blue Rider Press), an ugly young dwarf girl transforms first into a beauty, then into a tall woman, then into a wolf. We talk about metamorphosis and how the depths of the psyche intersects with the inner structure of fairy tales. Little Nothing is a novel that risks being a structure of pure imagination – Marisa Silver tells why she took the risk.
