show #274: will wiles & the search for authenticity

show #274

will wiles is in the house. his books, starting with his debut “care of wooden floors” in 2012, deal with – among many other themes – our longing for authenticity in a world of increasing homogenous conformity. will’s stories reveal the the horror of everyday tasks like caring for someone else’s cats or trying to remove a stray plastic bag from a backyard tree and they [the stories!] do so via delicious prose.

a dragon listens intently as will expands on the inspiration for his novels ….

now listen to the show and find out why american chain hotels are so much scarier [despite the quality of their showers] than kafka’s “the castle” [and don’t forget to pick up will’s latest “plume” simply because drax has become an addict to mr. wiles work]:
