Photobucket::::::::::::::::::::: Kate Sullivan interviews author Charles Baxter who discusses his newest collection of short stories. In "Gryphon," Baxter reveals characters built by tragedy, searching for joy, and yet finding their lives and emotions reduced to tiny masquerading bits of incidental hope. Crisp, elegant writing. Scathing wit. Lives portrayed through veils, their own and the readers. Charles Baxter is the author of the novels The Feast of Love (nominated for the National Book Award), The Soul Thief, Saul and Patsy, Shadow Play, and First Light, and the story collections Believers, A Relative Stranger, Through the Safety Net, and Harmony of the World. He lives in Minneapolis and teaches at the University of Minnesota and in the M.F.A. Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College. Tune in to the fun.
