Don’t miss the conversation between acclaimed author Amanda Leduc and Lambda Literary Award winning author, poet and screenwriter, Zoe Whittall on her latest novel, The Speculator .

 

It’s taboo to regret motherhood. But what would happen if you did? Shifting perspectives and time periods, The Spectacular is a multi-generational story exploring sexuality, gender and the weight of reproductive freedoms, from the author of The Best Kind of People

 

In her new book, Zoe Whittall captures three generations of very different women who struggle to build an authentic life in the absence of traditional familial and marital structures. Definitions of family, romance, gender and love will radically change as they seek out lives that are nothing less than spectacular. 

 

Books are available from our friends at Perfect Books.
