Facebook screenshots figure prominently in Gabrielle Glancy’s new book. That’s because during her long, debilitating illness doctors couldn’t diagnose, Glancy trolled Facebook but lacked enough energy to write.  The award-winning poet and nationally known college admissions expert later wove the screenshots into I’m Already Disturbed Please Come In: Parasites, Social Media & Other Planetary Disturbances (A Memoir, of Sorts), which critiques Western medicine and social media, and examines love in sickness and in health.  Gabrielle Glancy is Eric Jansen’s guest on this week’s Out in the Bay, reading from her book and discussing the issues it raises. (First aired March 5, 2015*; rebroadcast 7pm Thursday, July 2, 2015, on 91.7fm SF + KALW.org)

(*At the end of our original broadcast archived here is a morsel of music from Home Street Home, a provocative rock opera about homeless youth, drugs and BDSM that wrapped up its world premiere run Saturday, 3/7/15, at Z Space in San Francisco.)
