Taboo Featuring Lionel Shriver
Who dares to criticize identity politics and defend cultural appropriation? Best-selling author Lionel Shriver likes to say the unsayable and name the unnameable. In her take on Taboo, the best-selling novelist passionately defends her right to create fictional characters who don’t necessarily look, think or experience the world as she does. She also reflects on her own gender identity and the decision to change her name to Lionel as a teenager.
