More from the Conversation with Mary Roach featured in TMR’s Winter 2014: ‘Paradise Lost’ Issue
In our most recent (Winter 2014 Issue) Josh Huber and Johanna Saleska spoke on the phone with writer Mary Roach. Today on the podcast, we have a selection from their wide-ranging interview, including some new content that didn’t make it to the print interview. We hope you enjoy!
Mary Roach’s wildly successful books, including New York Times best sellers Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers and Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife, blend serious scientific inquiry with uproarious comedy, acute reporting, and frequently forgotten history. She has published six books, and her essays have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Discover, National Geographic and Wired, among others. Her latest book is Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal.
Josh Huber is a second-year master’s degree student in creative writing at the University of Missouri-Columbia. He teaches freshman composition at MU, is working on his first book-length manuscript of poetry and is writing a thesis about E. E. Cummings’s adventures in the early 1930’s. He lives in Columbia, Missouri.
Johanna Saleska is a graduate student in rhetoric and composition at the University of Missouri-Columbia and a former intern at The Missouri Review. In addition to teaching first-year writing at MU, Johanna is researching how college students write for and about the community through service-learning and community outreach programs on university campuses.
And don’t forget about our 2015 Miller Audio Prize Contest, with categories in Poetry, Prose, Audio Documentary, and–new this year–Humor!
