The fantastic and funny poet Patricia Lockwood has been a longtime favorite at Book Culture. Now, with her new memoir Priestdaddy (Riverhead, 2017), Lockwood takes her voice to a new genre, following her poetry collections Balloon Pop Outlaw Black (Octopus Books, 2012) and Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals (Penguin, 2014). Before her upcoming reading at Book Culture on 112th Street, we took the opportunity to ask Lockwood some questions.
