Julia May Jonas: Vladimir
Hailed as ‘cathartic, devious, and terrifically entertaining’ by The New York Times, Vladimir, the provocative, darkly witty debut from American novelist Julia May Jonas, is an international sensation. The novel follows a 50-something female literary professor who becomes consumed by lust and artistic envy for a younger writer, while her husband faces the fallout from decades of sexual misconduct. Mapping the minefield of the post-#MeToo movement, Jonas surveys a culture that patrols female desire and slyly up-ends assumptions about gender, power, shame and ambition. She appears in conversation with Abigail Ulman (Hot Little Hands).
