LITerally Ep. 20 - Deborah Reed, "The Days When Birds Come Back"
We had fun (lots of fun with lots of laughter) last Friday while talking to Deborah Reed and exploring her new book, The Days When Birds Come Back. We talked diction, structure, and tone, but we also explored the much larger themes of loss and pain -- and delved into how June and Jameson (her dual protagonists) rebuild their lives after watching them crumble.
Teresita Dovalpage, writing about food and murder and what it's like to wrap them together in Cuba, made us laugh and opened up on the LITerally Podcast about being a writer.
Ryan Sharp, a poet and a hell of a good guy, read some old and new poetry for us at LITerally.
