Garth Greenwell - Salon LIVE Online - May 2020

The Literary Salon

To celebrate Pride Month we wanted to gift you an exclusive release of this special private Salon, with the one and only Garth Greenwell! Garth and Damian talked writing, queerness and 'Cleanness', in this online Salon last year.Garth originally charmed us all at a Salon at The Savoy in 2016 with his debut novel 'What Belongs to You'. He reads his prose as beautifully as he writes it. His subsequent book, 'Cleanness', places its arms around the shoulders of his handsome sensuous debut and confronts many of the same themes and concerns, yet is very much its own thing. Like his first book, 'Cleanness' features an unnamed American teacher working in Sofia, Bulgaria who falls for a man with whom he experiences pleasure and pain and a certain amount of pleasure in pain. If you’re looking for a straightforward narrative, this is not it. If you’re looking for a musical meditation on the lures, limits and dangers of desire which will stimulate your mind and other regions, you’ve come to the right place. NOTE: contains highly explicit references and language - very much a post-watershed conversation!Podcast edited and produced by Megan Bay Dorman Learn more about your ad choices.
