Happy Thanksgiving! Today, we're thankful for this fantastic chat between Emily and the renowned, acclaimed, award-winning author, Bryan Washington. Bryan's latest book, Memorial, came out last month and today he's on the podcast discussing the book along with his debut short story collection, Lot. This interview touches on the importance of both Houston and Osaka to the book and to Bryan, plus excellent writing advice, and a starter pack for Japanese fiction. Get ready to add a bunch of books to your TBR, starting with Lot and Memorial. Buy links are below, and thank you as always for listening! Feel free to send us a note about the interview, Bryan’s writing, or anything else at [email protected]. ------------------------>
