This week on the Oddcast, the wonderful novelist and short story writer Karen Joy Fowler, author of works such as The Jane Austen Book Club and the PEN/Faulkner Award winning novel We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, discusses her writing career, how and why she came to literature of the fantastic first, a writing process of creating the outline last, and wisdom received from other authors she has known. A great, delightful interview with the amazing Ms. Fowler.
Journalist, novelist, radio personality, social activist, and radio-drama creator Solomon Jones joins us on the Liars Club Oddcast. Brilliant wit, conversation, and knowledge shared by a terrific Philadelphia author and personality.
This week’s Oddcast, the last recorded at the Philadelphia Writers Conference, features Liars Club member, novelist Dennis Tafoya, author of such tremendously well-wrought novels as The Wolves of Fairmount Park and The Poor Boy’s Game; and Liars Club associate, Edward Pettit, Philadelphia’s specialist on Edgar Allan Poe, and now programming director for the Rosenbach (pronounced “Ro’-sen-back“, which everybody gets wrong) Museum, where you can see original manuscripts and materials by Bram Stoker (they have “Dracula” in manuscript form no less) and Joyce and even Maurice Sendak. A freeform discussion about writing and books and mystery.
