Lawrence Naumoff, A Southern Tragedy

Season 8 Episode 818 | 26m 47s

Loading Player...

For A Southern Tragedy, in Crimson and Yellow, Naumoff creates an extended metaphor like a poet. The novel has the grace and finality and wonder of a postmortem, where each detail is revealed, turned around and looked at from behind, from underneath. It’s about some people mostly screwing up right and left, and the remnants of a beautiful, bright heritage, and the diary of a woman driven mad.
