Claire-Madeline is an MFA candidate at Sarah Lawrence College. Her work reconciles the artifice of theory with the reality of lived experience by subverting the universal of theoretical discourse with the idiosyncratic language of personal narrative. A detailed description of her work can be found on her website www.clairemadelineculkin.com where you can also find ways to be in touch. If you’re the author of a psychoanalytic text who would like to be featured on The New Books Network, where she serves as an interviewer for the podcast series on psychoanalytic writing, she welcomes requests on her site.
