On ‘Saying Nothing’

Thread, Greek or Roman, 1st century CE

The next part in my ongoing conversation with Daniela Cascella has been published at Sublunary Editions.

In Saying Nothing: A Conversation with Daniela Cascella, D and I discuss her her two books Nothing As We Need It and Chimeras. The two books, both published last year, explore her notion of chimeric writing, a concept which I’ve seen evolve through her series of books.

As always, the conversation about the writing was a pleasure. Thanks to D for her time and energy and to Josh for giving it a place to live.

On ‘Impossible Friends’

tristan foster and aashish kaulMy essay Impossible Friends has been published by the good folk at Meanjin. I use the essay to tell the stories of four writers: Kyle Coma-Thompson, Aashish Kaul, Saudamini Deo and Daniela Cascella. They are each smart and talented and good people who I only know because I write and they write and while that’s still a weird thing to me I’m very grateful to know each of them.

Big thanks to Brendan for giving me the freedom to write this piece.
