Interview with Shahar Bram on The Stones

The Stones

I had the good fortune to conduct an interview with Shahar Bram on June 17, 2012. His previous book Charles Olson and Alfred North Whitehead: An Essay on Poetry was a huge find during the middle of my graduate work on Organic Poetry. I talked with him over Skype about his new novel, The Stones, published by Two Cities Press. Do stones have sentience? Are the ghosts that haunt old Jerusalem part of what keeps the Middle East in turmoil? A fascinating man leads us through a frenzied tour of the old city of Jerusalem in this brilliant new novel and you can hear the interview here.
