Something New Under the Sun

Hogarth 2021

An interview with Alexandra Kleeman, Something New Under the Sun (2021). Alexandra and I discuss the need for a more fecund climate imagination, the appeal of writing about California as a natural space under threat, Hollywood as a microcosm for America’s late capitalism, and her love for Robin Kimmerer’s Braiding Sweetgrass.
