There’s something refreshing about a writer who breaks the rules, and instead creates narrative through genuine intuition. National award-winning author Lidia Yuknavitch, who reads from her book The Small Backs of Children at Auntie’s this Friday, does this while diving into taboo topics without a rulebook. Her fiction and nonfiction books investigate various themes with an edgy approach: war criticism, feminism, desires, sexuality, memoir. The author’s own unhappy background includes abuse at the hands of her father, an alcoholic mother, personal addiction and the death of her first child. Today, however, Yuknavitch’s writing indicates that her unique ability to write through instinct, rather than logic, makes her an author with introspections that shouldn’t be missed.
