Reading with Anca Szilagyi for The Furnace at Hollow Earth Radio

Anca Szilagyi is one of my favorite writers.  We met at the MFA program at the University of Washington, where she counseled me on the vagaries of workshopping a novel.  On August 1st, I was honored to help her read the title story of her collection More Like Home than Home, which she is polishing as a 2012-13 Made at Hugo House fellow.

Along with Corinne Manning, Anca curates The Furnace Reading Series, “a quarterly reading series showcasing one new prose writer (fiction, nonfiction, playwriting) at a time. Our mission is to encourage innovative storytelling and a vibrant literary community. Catch us live at the Hollow Earth Performance space, or listen online at”

Thank you to Greg Bem for this video, in which I read the footnotes.  It was a pleasure to voice the metanarrative to the story for our performance, the inaugural reading of The Furnace series.
