This episode focuses exclusively on the work of fiction writer Edward P. Jones, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Known World and All Aunt Hagar’s Children, and the subject of the Art of Fiction no. 222. The episode opens with an excerpt from that interview, a conversation with Hilton Als. Then the actor Amber Gray, of the original cast of Hadestown, reads Jones’s story “Marie” from issue no. 122.
This episode was sound designed and mixed by Helena de Groot, and mastered by Justin Shturtz.
