Flo and Clara, two impressionable students, are obsessed with each other and with a daring young writer named Mary MacLane, the author of a scandalous bestselling memoir. To show their devotion to Mary, the girls establish their own private club and call it the Plain Bad Heroine Society. Described by its author as "Picnic at Hanging Rock + The Blair Witch Project x lesbians".
We discuss Emily's love of horror, the films that inspired this book, Mary MacLane, unrealiable narrators, the burden of likeability and so much more.
