This Friday, Sophie and I are discussing Zadie Smith's essay, Flaming June, which is published in her newest collection of essays, Feel Free. In the essay, Smith reveals the first piece of art she ever bought (a poster of Flaming June) when she was on the cusp of adulthood, just setting off to university. It's a funny, poignant piece of writing that got us thinking about what our own art choices said about us as very young women.
Listen to hear our thoughts on Zadie Smith's essay and the pieces of art we first purchased.
