An Interview with Paulette Jiles
Interviewer: You seem to have very definite ideas about the function of family stories, and the whole principle of storytelling. Can you tell us about those ideas?
Jiles: Storytelling is a participatory sport, not a spectator sport. It’s one that anybody can indulge in, and is expected to, in families that still have the old traditions, and even in some that don’t.
