The Challenges and Satisfactions of Literary Fiction, featuring Eimear McBride

This week we’re celebrating 100 episodes, and bringing you Brooke’s conversation with Eimear McBride (author of Strange Hotel and A Girl Is a Half-Formed Thing). This is a rigorous and engaging conversation about the merits of literary fiction and why McBride wants her readers to actually take the effort to read her work. She is feisty and refreshing, saying, “I object to art being strangled by idiocy.” This interview will make you want to be a better literary citizen.
