41: Harold Rogers on ABSALOM, ABSALOM! (1936) by Billy Faulkner

EMANHATTAN — Harold, 22, is a writer, standup, and boxer. He grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Steubenville, Ohio. He read Absalom, Absalom! in the fortnight following the death of his paternal grandfather, about a month ago. I read it around the same time, six months after the death of my paternal grandfather. A lotta dad stuff in this ep. Apologies for this extended Faulky bender I'm on. This the last one for now. If you haven't read the book, the 20 min intro could be a good overview to maybe coax you into cracking it. If you have, I mean, shit, fuckwittit. Outro song: "untitled 02 | 06.23.2014." by kendrick https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GghFQ8ryEU Sean Thor Conroe is a writer and carpenter living in Harlem. Bars in X-R-A-Y, Soft Cartel, Back Patio, Expat Lit; forthcoming in Philosophical Idiot, BULL Lit. http://twitter.com/stconroe http://instagram.com/seanthorconroe http://1storyhaus.com

40: Bud Smith on AS I LAY DYING (1930) by William Faulkner and WORK (2017) by Bud Smith

EJERSEY CITY — In the second part of 2666 (2004) by Bolaño, Amalfitano, a philosophy professor losing his mind, tries to understand the secrets of the universe through an esoteric geometry book. But instead of reading it, he hangs it on a clothesline, outside, and watches it get rained on—blasted by the elements. Bud Smith’s writing embodies this idea: he out here, in the world, working at his oil refinery job, making art around his life rather than the other way around. I linked with him at his spot last weekend in Jersey City to talk about Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying (1930), which I happened to be reading when I saw, via Twitter, that he too was reading it. Faulkner also worked manual labor for a time—as an operator as a chemical plant, while writing this book. Bud Smith is the author of Teenager (Tyrant Books, 2019), Double Bird (Maudlin House, 2018), WORK (Civil Coping Mechanisms, 2017), Dust Bunny City (Disorder Press, 2017), Calm Face (House of Vlad, 2016), among others. He works heavy construction building and destroying chemical plants, refineries, and generating stations. He’s on Twitter @bud_smith https://twitter.com/Bud_Smith. Here is a list of his stories online: https://neutralspaces.co/bud_smith/. He is currently writing a serialized weekly series called Good Luck, from The Nervous Breakdown.

39: Tren W. aka Based Mountain on CHERRY (2018) by Nico Walker

EHARLEM-SYDNEY — Yo so I fucked with this book heavy. Obviously initially for the hype surrounding its backstory—homie Nico going to war, getting fucked up, getting hooked on opioids, robbing banks, getting caught, going to jail, still in jail now! (till 2020 i think) But the thing is it's written mad well too, on some Denis Johnson voice-driven type shit. Not to mention how in he goes, merking himself for all the wild shit he did. Not to mention how well it captures the petty drug trade in a bleak midwestern spot like outer Cleveland, where it's set. Just fire, all around, this one. Shouts out Gian from Tyrant Books and all the other editors who brought this thing to the world. Tren W. aka Based Mountain is a writer and poet and editor living in Sydney.

37: Nicholas Baptiste on Tom Wolfe's BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES and Denis Johnson's JESUS' SON

EWEST PHILLY — Nicholas Baptiste is a Philly-based writer, reader, musician, and MFKN LIBRARIAN YO. So sick. We post up on a blasted summer day on Baltimore Ave and powwow off the cuff about a whole gang of shit, returning throughout to our most recent reads: Tom Wolfe’s Bonfire of the Vanities (1987) and Denis Johnson’s Jesus’ Son (1992), respectively. We talk writing processes and what we consider constitutes the best art. Where this leads might be summed up as: that which investigates the difficult, touchy, taboo ideas, without either valorizing or condemning any one version of them. Sean Thor Conroe was born Sho Kamura in Tokyo in 1991.

35: Monogamy, Marriage, & Loyalty in DEPT. OF SPECULATION (2014) by Jenny Offill

ESOUTH PHILLY/SOUTH JERSEY — Still asking the same questions about monogamy, marriage, loyalty, child rearing, father/motherhood, the nuclear family, and work v. “love.” How these questions play out in Jenny Offill’s Dept of Speculation (2014), which charts a relationship from its inception to marriage to childbirth to infidelity, complicates things. Read in sips over the past three weeks and recorded during my CSA delivery route in South Philly (till I ran outta gas), during my route in South Jersey (after getting more gas), and on the way to the dentist, on foot, the following morning. Sound quality turned out surprisingly decent.

32: Sleep, Art, & Alt Bros in MY YEAR OF REST AND RELAXATION (2018) by Otessa Moshfegh

EPHILLY — Really hit close to home, this one, especially with how dang nippy out it's getting; feeling of late like hibernation is just about all I'm up for. Otessa Moshfegh's My Year of Rest and Relaxation (2018), her fourth book and second novel, is about a mid-twenties Manhattanite intent on blocking out the world by ingesting an increasingly harrowing cocktail of sedatives. Read it last week, mostly lying on my side, on my couch, on Benadryl, but also walking places, in the daytime, in the cold. In this episode, which I recorded at 7 a.m. while walking to the dentist, I get into why this character wants to block out the world and whether she's able to find her way back into the world. Also: my shifting affinities towards character-driven rather than auto-fictional writing. And: how being an alt bro doesn't change the fact that you're still, physiologically and temperamentally, a bro.
