All the latest news, ideas, and opinions from Denver's Independent Literary Center: lighthousewriters.org
Herein we get Eli Gottlieb’s eloquent intro; a new-and-improved pronunciation of my name (which I’m now going by—Aun-DRAY-a); “Bullet in the Brain,” read by Tobias Wolff; a hilarious-cum-poignant reading from Old School; thoughts on turning anecdote to story; thoughts on writing “of a piece” or schizophrenically; thoughts on making boring characters interesting; an especially sudden cut off mid-sentence (sorry–just learning this audio editing gig). To come in part II: we hear of Stephen King and terrorizing young readers; we hear about Raymond Carver; we hear about Hemingway; we hear about falsifying sermons; we hear more good things from Tobias and Eli.
Tobias Wolff interviewed by Eli Gottlieb, originally recorded at a packed Ricketson Theater on Saturday, September 15, 2007.
Thanks, all, and tune in for Part II next week!
