I had the best conversation with Bonnie Jo Campbell. Can’t wait to share it with you!
Please read “Boar Taint” in The Kenyon Review before you listen, or our discussion won’t make a lick of sense.

Bio: Bonnie Jo Campbell is the author of the novels Once Upon a River, a National Bestseller, and Q Road. Her critically acclaimed short fiction collections include American Salvage, which was a finalist for both the National Book Award and the National Book Critic’s Circle Award; Women and Other Animals, which won the AWP Prize for Short Fiction; and Mothers, Tell Your Daughters. She was a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow.
Her novel, Once Upon a River, was adapted into a full length feature film and released to international critical acclaim in 2020.
Her forthcoming novel The Waters (January 9, 2023) will be released by W.W. Norton; “with a ‘ruthless and precise eye for the details of the physical world’ (New York Times Book Review), Bonnie Jo Campbell presents an elegant antidote to the dark side of masculinity, celebrating the resilience of nature and the brutality and sweetness of rural life.”
Her story collection American Salvage, a National Book Award Finalist, was heralded by The Guardian as a top 10 rural noir novel of all time.
Please purchase Bonnie Jo Campbell’s books through Bookshop, if possible, or Amazon.
Next month, I will be talking to Katherine Vaz about her story, “Our Lady of the Artichokes.”
