Clarence Major and Kelly Luce on Writers on Writing

In this post-election show, Clarence Major (novelist, poet, painter, short story writer and essayist) joins Marrie Stone to talk about his latest story collection, Chicago Heat and Other Stories.   What's been on his mind?  How do we love?  How do we connect?  Where do we find hope?  He shares this and more.

In the second half, Kelly Luce talks about her debut novel, Pull Me Under.  She discusses her time in Japan, and how a phenomena unique to Japanese youth influenced her novel.  Kelly also discusses working with psychologically difficult characters, what a move to present tense did for the book, and how she became a serious writer after leaving her MFA program.
