Half of this audio is me talking about the writer Leonora Carrington first, a Surrealist artist (painter and writer, trilingual! She does/did that in English, French and Spanish!) and then comes her story “The Debutante,” so you can listen to it in two 5-minute sessions! More on Leonora Carrington at Talking People (Literature).
Read the lyrics here (from her album “not so soft”, 1991) Language notes: “to wane” is something the moon does, because the moon waxes and wanes! “To toe the line” is ‘to conform to a rule or standard’. More on Ani Difranco at the Talking People Website (Music)
