Below is a study of a 2006 novel by Kim McLarin that I published in The Bohemian Aesthetic shortly after the novel's publication. McLarin is an absolutely fearless writer - Sol Stein's quote, "Writers write what other people only think" - applies to her 100%. I met McLarin, and attended a reading at a coffee house in Cambridge where she read from the novel; some in the audience seemed stunned at some of the novel's ideas about motherhood. Today she is a professor at Emerson College and the host of the TV program Basic Black.
