Seeing as there’s not much going on down here in the States, perhaps it’s a good time to check in with one of our neighbors to the north. Toronto-based author Scaachi Koul was in town recently for a chat with Seattle writer Lindy West.
Koul is a senior writer for BuzzFeed News. She writes frankly and sharply about modern culture, and has paid the price via Twitter troll harassment.
Her first book is a collection of essays titled "One Day We’ll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter." In it she turns reflections about her life experiences — of family, cross-cultural issues, gender, sexism, racism, rape culture and body image — into an alternately funny, pointed and affecting commentary on western culture.
