We've Got Mail #58 | What Does It Mean To Be "Well Read?" (Special Guest: M. Lopes da Silva!)

It's an all-new episode of WE'VE GOT MAIL, the podcast where film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold answer YOUR letters!

This week, Bibbs and Witney are joined by author M. Lopes da Silva, whose new novel HOOKER is a retrowave, feminist, pro-queer, pro-sex work slasher/vigilante thriller about a sex worker in 1980s Los Angeles who uses hooks as weapons to fight a misogynistic serial killer!

Our listeners sent in a bunch of questions for Bibbs, Witney and M., including what it actually means to be "well read," which fictional books we'd like to own, and what our unproduced screenplays are like!

Give it a listen!
