Recorded June 13, 2017 Patricia Lockwood, “The Poet Laureate of Twitter” (unofficial), is the author of 2014’s groundbreaking Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals, a book of obscene, angry, funny verse that “is unforgettable, literally: once read, it cannot be forgotten” (NPR). Her 2013 satirical poem “Rape Joke,” first printed on the website The Awl, “reawakened a generation’s interest in poetry” (The Guardian). Her debut poetry collection Balloon Pop Outlaw Black was trumpeted as one of 2012’s best by The New Yorker. Lockwood’s new memoir Priestdaddy tells the story of her unconventional upbringing and irascible Catholic-priest father. === Original video: Downloaded by on Fri, 16 Aug 2019 09:24:29 GMT Available for 30 days after download
