A Conversation in the Round
Today I interview Amy Wright. Wright is an essayist and artist, one who works across a dizzying and dazzling range of subjects and media. However, in her new book, Paper Concert: A Conversation in the Round (Sarabande, 2021), it's not only Wright's voice that shines, but also the voices of almost fifty other contributors. She's written—or maybe I should say assembled or orchestrated—the thoughts and reflections of a dizzying and dazzling range of thinkers, artists, scientists, and true human beings, sharing their experiences and reflections on what it means to be, to live, to make, to grieve, to laugh and, as Wright's entire book attests, to share meaningful conversations that leave us all the richer for the encounter. I'm deeply grateful to share our conversation with you.
