Late Night Debut, hosted by Amber Keller

This week we feature Liz Prato’s debut story collection, Baby’s on Fire, published by Press 53. As Laryssa Wirstiuk writes in Atticus Review“Prato’s prose is widely appealing and many-layered: her language is breezy and deceptively casual, while her content is visceral.”

Act 1: Host Amber Keller covers entertaining book news and cool new debuts
Act 2:
 Co-host authors Yuvi Zalkow and Suzy Vitello discuss Liz Prato’s debut

Act 3: Yuvi Zalkow speaks with Liz Prato about experimenting with narrative stance,
the joys of revision, and how not to be boring
