on Radar Talk Intimate podcast hosted by François Pointeau

Radar Talk Intimate is a podcast, hosted by poet François Pointeauabout creativity in general, and creative folks in particular.






From François Pointeau: I met up with Jennifer duBois at the Central Library in Austin, Texas last week. We had a wonderful conversation. Mostly, we talked about her novel The Spectators (Penguin Random House 2019), though we also talk briefly about her other two books, A Partial History of Lost Causes and Cartwheel. An alumna of the Iowa Writers' Workshop and Stanford University's Stegner Fellowship program, duBois is the recipient of a Whiting Award and a National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing grant. She teaches in the MFA program at Texas State University.


It was fun meeting Jennifer, and I can't wait to read her next book so that I can talk with her again.


François was born in Rennes, France, and moved to the States with his family as a child. He first self-published his poetry collection, Beer Songs for the Lonely, in 2006, and then completely rewrote it in 2013-14. His second book, Good Feeling: Seven Short Stories, came out in 2015. His next collection of poems, Songs of the Rollin' Chateau, are based on his four months living on the road while traveling through the southwest and California and will be available via his Kickstarter campaign starting July 23, 2019.
