Morgan Wilcock wrote some novels and scripts while attempting to get into medical school. For the space and time to write, she returned to Columbia University, where she’d already attended undergrad. Writing mostly about the unorthodox life-experience she’d picked up while getting around different places in her twenties, Morgan started a memoir — separate from the other work — and covered some trauma and the male gaze. Morgan’s intention through memoir-writing is and probably always has been to reach a broader audience, especially women. Her greatest influences include David Foster Wallace, Viktor Frankl (and other Holocaust memoirists), the director Sofia Coppola, and Truman Capote.
