The Tin House Podcast: Writing as a Ghost Story, with Luis Urrea

Tuesday saw the release of Queen of America, Luis Alberto Urrea’s anticipated follow up to The Hummingbird’s Daughter. Those of us lucky enough to be in attendance at the 2011 Writer’s Workshop were treated to the first public performance from Queen, which we are happy to be able to share with you here. As an added bonus, we have also included Luis’s thoughtful and hypnotic lecture “The Theory and Practice of Trust: Writing as a Ghost Story.”

You can never get enough Urrea in your life, so turn on, tune in, and drop some knowledge on yourself!
