Publisher's Summary

Leaping from ballet to quiltmaking and from the The Nutcracker to an Annie-B Parson interview, Idiophone is a strikingly original meditation on risk-taking and provocation in art and a unabashedly honest, funny, and intimate consideration of art-making in the context of motherhood, and motherhood in the context of addiction. Amy Fusselman’s compact, beautifully digressive essay feels both surprising and effortless, fueled by broad-ranging curiosity, and, fundamentally, joy.

Really Incredible

Amy Fusselman does everything to keep the attention of the listener with her read of this wild, poetic essay. Loved everything about the Nutcracker. Fun and memorable with so much detail.
