Coming of Age in 1995 ft. goblinodds
Two striking visions of coming of age – Ursula K. Le Guin's story "Coming of Age in Karhide" and Amy Heckerling's film Clueless – come out two months apart in mid-1995. The former depicts a planet of androgynous beings whose gender and sexuality continually adapt to others within a state known as "kemmer." The latter adapts Jane Austen's 1815 novel Emma as about a high school student living in Beverly Hills, playing her hand at matchmaker until she falls in love herself. My guest, @goblinodds (Twitter / YouTube), joins me to explore how these two works cohere into one profound double vision.
