Michelle Tea presents Against Memoir: Complaints, Confessions & Criticisms
In conversation with Melissa Febos

Queer countercultural icon Michelle Tea, author of Black Wave and How to Grow Up, presents a new collection of journalistic essays on all things artistic, romantic, and neurotic. The razor-sharp but damaged Valerie Solanas, a doomed lesbian gang, recovering alcoholics, and teenage misfits: these are some of the larger-than-life, yet all-too-human figures populating America's fringes – and Tea’s new collection Against Memoir. Delivered with her signature honesty and dark humor, Tea blurs the line between telling other people's stories and her own, and turns an investigative eye to the genre that's nurtured her entire career —memoir — and considers the price that art demands be paid from life. Tea discusses her new book in conversation with fellow memoirist and essayist Melissa Febos, author of Whip Smart and Abandon Me. A signing and Q&A follow the conversation.
