When the unnamed narrator of Alyssa Songsiridej’s debut novel Little Rabbit first meets a choreographer at an artists' residency in Maine, it's not a match. But when they run into each other a few months later, their encounter sets off a summer of expanding her own body's boundaries—her body learns to obediently follow his, and his desires quickly become inextricable from her pleasure. This must be happiness, right? Songsiridej sticks a singular landing with this exhilarating and deeply unflinching look at desire, creativity, ambition, sex, and power. Songsiridej joined us for the launch in conversation with acclaimed author Julia Phillips (Disappearing Earth), where they discussed questions of craft, the writing of sexuality, and the recentering of female lust and creative ambition.
