Black Widow

Terrible, Thanks for Asking

Black Widow

Leslie is a Black widow. No, not the spider — a Black human woman whose husband died. Because eventually, when she least expected it, she DID finally find a guy (whom she had already found once before). This episode is about that guy. His name is Scott. But it’s also about another guy: a baby boy named Brooks. Her very, very good book is available here.
