Today I chat with Marielle Thompson about her gothic novel, WHERE IVY DARES TO GROW. We talk about the trope of “gothic madness” and her dissociative disorder at the center of the novel, as well as time travel romance, sex and the character work it’s doing in her story, and she has some book recommendations for us. If you want to support both the podcast as well as independent bookstores nationwide, you can buy WHERE IVY DARES TO GROW and Marielle’s book recs through my online bookshop. If you want another way to help out the podcast, you can follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and Threads, and leave me a review wherever you get your podcasts.
