in praise of messy lives

I went to see you at BSU and had a blast. I think you are the funniest!!! How did you decide to rearrange your essays in the order that became Bad Feminist? Also, are you working on any more pop culture pieces? Thanks in advance!!!

I took a lot of inspiration from how Katie Roiphe organized In Praise of Messy Lives in terms of the sections. And as I arranged the individual essays, I thought about what the common threads were and how the book could have an overall narrative arc.
