As far as most of us at BUST are concerned, women are always making the best art—but this week is truly a standout. Including Hulu’s two addictive new shows about complicated women and new books by Claudia Rankine and Siri Hustvedt, here’s our can’t-miss list.
Aidy Bryant stars in this adaptation of Lindy West’s memoir, all about a woman navigating her journalism career, some seriously shitty men, and fatphobia. Out on Hulu March 15, and review (and interview with West, who executive produced the series!) to come soon on BUST.com.
Based on the viral story of a mother with Munchausen by proxy—and her daughter who then helped kill her—Hulu’s other latest series highlights Patricia Arquette and Joey King. Premiering exclusively on Hulu, March 20.
CupcakKe’s newest track, released March 8, is timely, punchy, and so badass. Streaming now.
