James was one of my partner's advisers in college, and I had the joy of meeting him at a conference we both went to a few years ago. When I read his most recent book, The Subtle Bodies, I know instantly that I wanted to talk to him about his influences, especially the visual art that comes across so powerfully in the book.
I'm very excited to have had the chance to do just that for a recent Late Night Conversation. Have a listen here: http://latenightlibrary.org/james-mccorkle/.
I hope you enjoy the interview, and that you'll check out The Subtle Bodies soon! (And insider tip: no one has won the book giveaway contest yet, so if you don't have a copy, you still have time to enter to win!)
