FROM THIS EPISODE

In When the Sick Rule the World (Semiotext(e)), a collection of prose pieces, Dodie Bellamy explodes the essay form into poetry, personal memoire and literary analysis, and reveals her struggle with nostalgia for her working class roots. The Bookworm discusses her search is to move past intellect to something emotionally complex and real. Bellamy agrees that her experiments with form seek to preserve the essential Dodie Bellamy – if not in a changing, threatening world, then in writing and art.
