"You Better Be Good or the Aswang Will Get You": A Conversation With Melissa Chadburn For Electric Literature
I am happy to share my first byline for Electric Literature, an author conversation with Melissa Chadburn on her debut novel, A Tiny Upward Shove, out this week from Farrar, Straus and Giroux. Among other things, we talked about her use of the Aswang, a malevolent creature of Philippine mythology akin to the western witch, as a vehicle for reexamining societal notions of female rage, vengeance, and justice.
