LARB Radio Hour: Jess Arndt on “Large Animals: Stories”; Plus Brian Blanchfield’s “Proxies: Essays Near Knowing”
By LARB AV – June 8, 2017
Los Angeles author Jess Arndt joins Kate and Medaya to talk about her first collection of stories Large Animals: Stories. Arndt is a stunningly original author, writing fluidly surrealistic tales where subjectivity is multiplicity; yet the proceedings are anchored by the bodies we navigate and inhabit. Also, Kate recommends Proxies: Essays Near Knowing, a book of philosophical poetry by Cal Arts Professor Brian Blanchfield.
