Thank you @bust_magazine for the great interview and write up on #AnyManNovel in your 25th anniversary issue! “...This summer, she will release her blazingly original debut novel, Any Man, a startling, no-holds-barred examination of sexual violence in America, told through the lens of victims and bystanders of a prolific female serial rapist. “Any Man is a novel about men who are survivors of sexual assault at the hands of a violent serial rapist who happens to be a woman...” (pre- order link in bio)
Thank you @vanityfair for this wonderful review and recommendation. “Any Man blends prose and poetry in a searing exploration of sexual aggression. A terrifying sexual predator who calls herself Maude preys on men—any man, as the title suggests: young, old, strangers, acquaintances, in bars, at home. Tamblyn’s sharp satire throws into stark relief the absurdity of the questions to which rape and sexual assault victims are so frequently subjected...” (pre-order link in bio) #AnyMan

Thrilled to read from #AnyManNovel on June 27th at one of my favorite local bookstores @greenlightbklyn and in conversation with the phenomenal @_morganjerkins . Join us!
Thank you @paperbackparis for his wonderful and thoughtful review. “...Although we never see her face and only hear her side of the story over a few pages Tamblyn’s antagonist, known only as Maude, is truly a terrifying entity. But by focusing on the victim’s story, while leaving the predator completely in the shadows, we are able to see every way to grieve, everywhere these things can effect those who have suffered through any form of sexual assault...” ( pre-order link in my bio)

Here is an excerpt from the piece I wrote for Mother’s Day and @TIME on being a parent in the age of rage and revolution. Tag a mama you love in the comments here and tell them why they are so amazing. #MothersDay . . . Motherhood makes you dangerous. . When I had my daughter, it was the first time that I truly understood the depths of my own power and the width of my own potency. It can be hard for women to value the complexities of such dimensions, especially in a society that systematically tells us that our bodies are wrong, the way we breastfeed is wrong, the way we raise our children is wrong — that nothing is right about our wrongness. After I became a mother, something changed in me; my intuition’s frequency, my fire’s luminosity. My sorcery. . The very act of giving birth is an alchemical spell. It’s an experience that binds you to your two most polar opposites: a feeling of extreme strength and extreme fragility, all at once. I’ve described it as becoming a superhero overnight. I once described it to my friend Laura as becoming The Incredible Hulk; Within hours after the experience of giving birth, your hormones stampede, your breasts swell, your mind grows a thousand daggers it would use in a second to protect your new offspring. It’s a lot. I told her that it could make you feel crazy. That it’s okay to cry whenever she wanted to. That not every woman is a gorgeous lactating goddess and not every experience of motherhood is a happy one. Not every woman slips easily back into her body, her old life, her living, after becoming a mother. That we need support. That while women nurture, we too need nurturing. Once at 3.a.m., I was in complete despair... (link in bio)

Thank you, sweet Emily. Purchase link in my bio. #Repost @emilywellsmusic ・・・ This morning I finished the extraordinary forthcoming novel from my friend @amberrosetamblyn ... it’s a steady hum across the bow to our culture, our time... a meditation on pain and survival, a sleight of hand. In the middle of the night I woke up and wrote this so I wouldn’t forget to tell her... I’ll tell you too: The pain isn’t masculine, the pain is human. You force the reader to confront our own gendering of pain. Preorder now... out June 26th from @harperperennial
