WORDS ON A WIRE: Steve Yarbrough

 

  In a rebroadcast from November 3, 2013, Ben & Daniel talk with novelist Steve Yarbrough, whose latest book is "The Real of Last Chances."   Yarbrough talks about why his book isn't set in the South or features Southern characters like in his past novel.  He also talks about his early start as a writer and when he first discovered Southern writers such as Faulkner.  Despite the Southern influence in his writing, many would be surprised at Yarbrough's fondness for Eastern European, Irish, and Latin American authors.  http://steveyarbrough.net/

For this week's Poem of the Week, Ben reads Federico Garcia Lorca's "City that Does Not Sleep."

And in this week's Poetic License, Daniel talks about the importance of mentors, specifically about his mentor, Steve Yarbrough.

Aired Aug. 31, 2014.
