Radio Awakened episode 49 – Reincarnation Blues with Michael Poore

The guest: Michael Poore is a novelist, the author of Reincarnation Blues and Up Jumps the Devil, both of which examine the vast multiplicity of human experience. His short fiction has appeared in numerous journals, and his story ‘The Street of the House of the Sun’ was included in the 2012 Best Nonrequired Reading. Michael has spent the last quarter-century working as a teacher in the Indiana part of Chicago, where he lives with his wife and daughter. Before that, though, he grew up in Ohio, where he attended Ohio University for a really long time, drove a hill-country taxi cab, and once accidentally helped a man escape from jail.
