In this episode, we talk about Francesca Lia Block’s magical erotic short story collection, Nymph: “As in her other works, Block weaves together themes of subtle magic, youthful hopes, modern urban decay, and deep emotion, told with lyrical storybook language. The stories in NYMPH bear all the hallmarks of classic Francesca Lia Block—punk spirited characters who celebrate love, life, and art—with one important different: this time the author carries her vision through the full range of emotion and erotic interaction that her mature audience appreciates.

An interconnected series of stories, NYMPH is a special journey through the lives and loves of characters like Plum, a Crayon-haired girl who has a gift: if she makes love with a person, that person will then meet their true love, or Tom, a burned out surfer whose luck changes when he is rescued by a mysterious, wheelchair-bound woman, or Sylvie, a chronically depressed poet who finds beauty in unexpected places. Block's erotic explorations of these smoky, kaleidoscopic fables are anything but conventional; these are stories of love, loss, and life, about the healing power of sex and bonding.”

This episode definitely became something of an FLB lovefest, and a retrospective of her influence on both of us over the years. We talk about growing up wanting to be a “Weetzie Bat Girl,” how FLB’s books are the real reason we both live in California, and our enduring love for Venice Beach. And of course, we delve into what makes all FLB books so sexy, who the hottest FLB characters are, and much more!

(CW: This episode also contains a frank discussion about incest.)
