Joe Wilkins

"Joe Wilkins has a big, true, highway-running American voice. When you see a new book of his, you should celebrate. Just buy it, put down the window, and let the music blow back your hair. It's nothing but alive." – Luis Alberto Urrea

Conversation with Brandon Schrand

Brevitylogo

Last spring I had the good fortune to carry on a dialogue with writer Brandon Schrand about form, language, and experimentation in the writing of memoir. The Mountain and the Fathers eschews chronology for fragmentation and thematic connection, and Brandon’s newest, Works Cited: An Alphabetical Odyssey of Mayhem and Misbehavior, is a freewheeling, fun, affecting memoir penned in the found form of a works cited. You can check out our conversation in this month’s issue of Brevity.
