[The actress and poet Amber Tamblyn talks with Ira Glass about her new poetry collection, Dark Sparkler. Folks may know Amber Tamblyn from her acting career, where she has earned nominations for Emmy, Golden Globe, and Independent Spirit Awards. That's not all there is to her, though—fans should also take note of her poetry, which has been praised by Poet Laureate Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Nick Flynn, amongst others. Amber is a contributor to the Poetry Foundation and Bust Magazine, as well as Amy Poehler's Smart Girls at the Party. Her third collection of poetry, Dark Sparkler, explores the lives and deaths of child star actresses, with art work by Marilyn Manson and David Lynch. The Guardian calls the collection "a devastatingly haunting work." Join Amber and This American Life's Ira Glass for an intimate conversation and reading.
