Scott McClanahan, "THE SARAH BOOK"

Skylight Books Podcast Series

The Sarah Book is master storyteller Scott McClanahan's portrait of new love, young heartbreak, the coming together of families, and families coming undone. As much as this book takes place in Appalachia, it also takes place in the universe. Its landscapes are the highways and basements and dirty rooms where we are eternally condemned and redeemed. McClanahan has written a love letter to divorce, in a language somewhere between Romantic poetry and a distilled mountain twang. The Sarah Book is an unforgettable tale told by one of today's finest writers.

Ep7: The Sarah Podcast (Scott McClanahan's The Sarah Book)


In this episode, I discuss what it means to be a Dirtbag in reference to Scott McClanahan's The Sarah Book, and relate the true story of my high school years, when I found myself very much in love with a girl (Noelle), who I wanted to take to an Iron Maiden concert, even though she had a boyfriend, but who ended up taking *me* to an Iron Maiden concert in a heartwarming twist. I also talk about Ramen, porn theatres, atonal music, Chapo, Appalachia, academia and I read poetry like I'm fancy or something.Music by Twilight Fauna: https://twilightfauna.bandcamp.com/Read this thing here: https://www.jacobinmag.com/2018/01/under-neoliberalism-you-can-be-your-own-tyrannical-bossAnd buy The Sarah Book from Tyrant Books: https://nytyrant.com/collections/titles/products/pre-order-the-sarah-book-by-scott-mcclanahan

Scott McClanahan came on the podcast to talk about The Sarah Book, lies, drinking, Walter Mosely, writing directly, the bullshit of "literary" stuff, and Red Lobster cheddar biscuits. We had a lot of fun. Enjoy!
