Episode 227 — Kevin Sampsell


Kevin Sampsell is the guest. His debut novel, This is Between Us, is now available from Tin House Books.

Jess Walter, author of Beautiful Ruins, says

In This Is Between Us Kevin Sampsell writes with grace and intimacy about the toughest subject of all—love—and manages to capture a relationship in its natural state: wry and wistful, strange and sexy, humming with desire, quaking with vulnerability.

And Patrick deWitt, author of The Sisters Brothers, says

This Is Between Us is an imperturbable, strange, melancholy (but never maudlin) piece of work. Kevin Sampsell straddles the line between candor and oversharing with an artful grace I found infectious.

Monologue topics: mail, art vs. media, Tom Waits, LSD, the devil, doing the podcast live in front of people.
