On the Colin McEnroe Show on WNPR, Connecticut Public Radio. It’s from 1–2pm ET (12–1 CT). They’re doing a show on sincerity, and speaking with the author R. Jay Magill, author of the very recent book Sincerity: How a moral ideal born five hundred years ago inspired religious wars, modern art, hipster chic, and the curious notion that we all have something to say (no matter how dull).
I’ll be on in the second half of the show, speaking about the New Sincerity, which I’ve written a bit about at HTMLGIANT:
- 28 May: “Viktor Shklovsky wants to make you a better writer, part 2”
- 04 June: “What we talk about when we talk about the New Sincerity, part 1”
- 07 June: “I am drinking gin & wrote about 18 long titles i randomly chose using wikipedia”
- 11 June: “What we talk about when we talk about the New Sincerity, part 2”
- 14 June: “23 brief replies to Blake Butler & Elisa Gabbert & Johannes Göransson & Chris Higgs re: (dear god, what else?) the fucking New Fucking Sincerity“
And here’s more on Magill’s book, which I’m very happy to now know about.
