What do you get when you mix Jeanette Winterson and Marlon James?

I feel like I’ve been bringing James up a lot, but… that’s only because there’s been so much buzz about him in the book world.

As The Millions puts it, “[i]n what reads like someone’s answer to the ‘who would you invite to a literary dinner party’ question, novelists Jeanette Winterson and Marlon James sat down for a fantastic conversation” running the gamut from understanding vs. observing, authority, homophobia, and faith wars to achievement, medication, suicide, and beyond. All within the span of 90 minutes.
