Quarantine Session #19: Douglas Martin + Darcey Steinke
Douglas A. Martin discusses the reissue of his novel, Branwell: A Novel of the Brontë Brother, with his friend and fellow Brooklyn author Darcey Steinke. In their discussion of Martin's fictionalized story of the less-successful sibling of Emily, Charlotte and Anne Bronte, the two wrestle with how traditional biography fails to make room for queerness, and how writers discover their identify through their writing – as prose can inform life as much as life informs prose.
