#55 – The Midnight Library by Matt Haig (with Laura Petro and Meggie Gates of YA, We Read It!)

Tune in as Laura Petro and Meggie Gates (YA, We Read It!) hang out with Arthur for a recap of The Midnight Library by Matt Haig. This 2020 magical-realism take on the now-beloved Multiverse subgenre of speculative fiction follows 35-year-old Nora Seed as she ODs to escape her depressing life, which sends her off on a journey to navigate the countless versions of her life that have branched through the aforementioned multiverse. A few of the topics that the hosts chat about are mental health rep, the smell of menstrual blood being able to attract bears, multiverse media like Everything Everywhere All At Once and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and whether or not abortion should have been pursued in the Domhnall Gleeson romance About Time.
