This week, Two Cities author Barbara Carlson reads her stirring, sensual prose poem “The Wild Part.” And we discuss the controversial issue of how much an author’s identity matters when we read. Are authors confined to writing about their own frame of experience, or can they reach farther afield? We discuss My Absolute Darling and the works of Julia Glass, among others.
Be sure to check out our current issue, full of wonderful new work! We’ll be highlighting other pieces from the issue in episodes to come.
