In her critically acclaimed memoir, Whip Smart, Melissa Febos laid bare the intimate world of the professional dominatrix. Now, in her dazzling new book, Abandon Me, she captures the intense bonds of love and the need for connection – with family, lovers, and oneself. At once a fearlessly vulnerable memoir and an incisive investigation of art, love, and identity, Abandon Me draws on childhood stories, religion, psychology, mythology, popular culture, and the intimacies of one writer’s life to reveal intellectual and emotional truths that feel startlingly universal. She joined us to share a few of them.
