Tough love for literature

Episode 404: Matthew Vollmer

Leave a comment

We’re joined by Matthew Vollmer, author of several books (most recently, This House is Not Your Home, 2022) and also our former grad-school classmate. We talk about our experiences at Iowa, and how our writing and teaching have evolved in the years since. Also Clarice Lispector’s book The Hour of the Star, which Vollmer loves and Tom finds a little confusing.

You can find more about Matthew–and links to his work–at his website,
