Join us this month as I interview Reading Books Together co-host, John Paul Jaramillo, about his newest novel. Carlos Montoya, published by Twelve Winters Press, explores many of the same themes (and even characters) as John Paul’s previous works, The House of Order (Anaphora Press, 2012) and Little Mocos (Twelve Winters Press, 2017). The book is a stylistic departure in many ways from his previous writing, and we discuss that, writing process, and the family stories that must be explored through fiction.
