Writer's Voice - Jamel Brinkley
From Jeff Layne
Jamel Brinkley reads two excerpts from his book A Lucky Man: Stories (Graywolf Press). The book reflects the tenderness and vulnerability of black men and boys whose hopes sometimes betray them, especially in a world shaped by race, gender, and class—where luck may be the greatest fiction of all. A graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, Mr. Brinkley was also a Carol Houck Smith Fiction Fellow at the Wisconsin Institute for Creative Writing. He is currently a Wallace Stegner Fellow in Fiction at Stanford University.
