reading books together: a podcast with deborah brothers and john paul jaramillo episode 11

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.  

–Deborah Brothers holds a Ph.D. in English Studies and reviews books for Choice and The Lion and the Unicorn and her essays, fiction, and scholarly work have appeared in several publications.   

–John Paul Jaramillo holds an MFA in Creative Writing and is the author of three books: The House of Order, Little Mocos, and Carlos Montoya.
