Today we’re joined by Bryan Washington for a conversation about his new novel Memorial, allowing no answers for his characters, using physical space on the page, shared silences, putting his own photos in his book, and why he cooks the meals mentioned in the book several times while writing. We also recommend: The Naturalist by Andrew Mayne, Lone Jack Trail by Owen Laukkanen, and The Hidden Tower by James E. Wisher. Audiobook of the week is Malorie by Josh Malerman. Plus – Dave wrestles with dog walking, Laura has a clog mishap at work, and Andrew stockpiles boats in a landlocked state.
