SCAACHI KOUL with LINDY WEST at Seattle Public Library



Toronto-based writer Scaachi Koul, senior culture writer for Buzzfeed, is here this evening with One Day We’ll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter (Picador), in which she deploys her razor-sharp humor to share all the fears, outrages, and mortifying moments of her life.

“Simultaneously uproarious and affecting, the personal essays in Buzzfeed contributor Koul's debut explore the nuances of life as a first-generation Canadian with Indian parents, from phobias, guilt trips, and grudges to the drama of interracial dating.... She also reflects poignantly on race, sexism, and body image issues.... The specifics of Koul's life are unique, but the overarching theme of inheritance is universal, particularly the vacillation between struggling against becoming one's parents and the begrudging acceptance that their ways might not be so bad. Koul's deft humor is a fringe benefit.”---Publishers Weekly.  

She appears in conversation with writer, editor and performer Lindy West, whose book Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman (Hachette) won a 2017 Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award.  She's currently a culture writer for GQ magazine and and a weekly columnist at The Guardian.
