Interview with Literary Fiction Author Katy Carl

Tales with de Sales

What does it mean to love someone as they are? Is authenticity possible in a social media driven society? Are creative pursuits self-indulgence or a radical gift of self? How can literature help form identity and virtue? This discussion with Katy Carl was wide ranging and yet precise in its treatment of human dignity and generosity with our God-given gifts.

128 - As Earth Without Water - Katy Carl

The Catholic Culture Podcast

Katy Carl, author of the excellent new novel As Earth Without Water and editor-in-chief of the Catholic arts journal Dappled Things, joins the show to discuss the novel and the state of the Catholic literary scene. The publisher's description of As Earth Without Water: When Dylan Fielding, celebrated contemporary visual artist, becomes Br. Thomas Augustine, novice at Our Lady of the Pines monastery, he finds delight not only in the shock his choice causes everyone around him but—to his own surprise—in the rhythms of the life itself. Shortly before he solidifies a lifelong commitment to the community, a traumatic encounter with an abusive priest plunges Thomas Augustine into terror and doubt. Reeling and uncertain, he reaches out to his friend, rival, and former lover, Angele Solomon, with hopes that she can help him to speak the difficult truth. As she attempts to advocate for her friend, Angele must ask how the scars left by their common past—as well as newer harms—can ever be healed or transcended. The wider inquiries demanded next will transfigure how both of them picture a range of human and divine things: time and memory; art and agency; trust and responsibility; and what it might mean to know real freedom.   Links As Earth Without Water https://www.wisebloodbooks.com/store/p115/katy-carl-as-earth-without-water.html Dappled Things https://www.dappledthings.org/ Catholic Imagination Conference 2022 https://udallas.edu/centers/cowan/cic/index.php This podcast is a production of CatholicCulture.org.

Episode 46: Katy Carl

Sacred and Profane Love

In this episode, I speak with Katy Carl, who is the editor in chief of Dappled Things and also the author of As Earth Without Water, to discuss Henry James's novella, Washington Square and R.R. Reno's essay, Duty, the Soul of Beauty. After a great deal of back and forth, we come to the conclusion that what the novella shows is that mere duty, in absence of well ordered loves and the habits of attention that come with it, can be a destructive force in family and social life.Katy Carl is the editor-in-chief of Dappled Things and the author of the novel, As Earth Without Water.

Lust kills art: 8 1/2 (1963) w/ Katy Carl

Criteria: The Catholic Film Podcast

Federico Fellini's 8 1/2 is widely considered to be the best film ever made about filmmaking, but it's about much more than that. Ingenious cinematography and surreal images convey the experience of a man who is increasingly lost in his own memory and fantasy, and so finds himself unable to have real relationships with the people in his life or to bear fruit as an artist. Not all uses of imagination are equal to the artist. There is a contemplative, receptive use and a possessive, self-indulgent use, and this latter form is antithetical to true art. The protagonist of 8 1/2 may find that his artistic and personal problems, which find him ever more slave to fantasy, may have one and the same solution: fidelity to his wife. We might ask whether there is really such a thing as "writer's block" for a true artist, or whether such blocks are due to vice getting in the way of docility and receptivity. Katy Carl, novelist and editor-in-chief of Dappled Things, joins the show to discuss this film. 8 1/2 can be viewed with a subscription to Criterion Channel or HBO Max, and rented on many other platforms.
