LARB Radio: Poet Douglas Kearney (audio)

LARB (, 8-3-17); Dhr. Seven, Ashley Wells (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

"No one might think anything of Doug -- until you hear him read. He's so energetic -- yelling, confessing, and speed-talking -- that you're like, 'Hot d*mn, who is this maniac?'

Here on the L.A. Review of Books Radio Hour he's altogether too subdued for those unfamiliar with his work to likely be much impressed."
Peter J. Harris appeared on LARB in 7-14-17
LARB Radio goes in depth with poet and Cal Arts Professor Douglas Kearney. Co-hosts Janice Rhoshalle Littlejohn and Will Clark talk with the award-winning poet, opera librettist, about the progression of his publications, writing of and for the common (wo)man, the vibrant beauty of his language, and more!

Summary: eNotes version
Also, Peter J. Harris (author of Johnson Chronicles) returns to recommend a 1970's underground classic of African literature, The Healers by Ghanaian author Ayi Kwei Armah.
