Emily Gould and Elif Batuman

Emily Gould's new novel Friendship features two thirtyish-year-old women who could easily have been written for GIRLS:  Amy, whose taste for privilege exceeds what her income can manage, and Midwesterner Bev, bored of her Bohemian lifestyle but not sure which kind of lifestyle to take up next. Join Gould and Elif Batuman for a discussion of fiction, friendship —and what to do when one finds oneself burned out and blogged out.Emily Gould is the author of And the Heart Says Whatever and the co-owner, with Ruth Curry, of a feminist publishing startup, Emily Books, which sells new and backlist titles via a subscription model. She has written extensively for many publications, including The New York Times, The New York Times Magazine, MIT’s Technology Review, Poetry, the London Review of Books, n+1, The Guardian, The Economist, Slate, and Jezebel, and was an editor at Gawker in 2008.
