Listen to Katherine E. Young on the Badass Women-Folk Podcast
Katherine E Young talks about her translation work, her new poetry anthology, and her latest collection of poems Woman Drinking Absinthe
Katherine E. Young talks about her many literary projects with host Christine Sloan Stoddard on the Badass Lady-Folk podcast. From her new collection Woman Drinking Absinthe, she reads her poem, "Bar at the Folies-Bergère" which you can read here. Intrigued, Stoddard reads the description of Woman Drinking Absinthe, "The mood is Paris, the morning after a debauch: bitter hot chocolate, a croissant, and a strong aftertaste of the previous night. The setting is Art Nouveau, with its ornament and excess; the playlist is Debussy, Ravel, Stravinsky, and Puccini..." Woman Drinking Absinthe is available now from Alan Squire Publishing.
