#98 An in-depth chat with author Arthur Phillips (The Tragedy of Arthur; The Egyptologist; Prague) about Shakespeare, making work of writing, unreliable narrators, and more. Recorded at a cafe in Brooklyn on May 11, 2013. There is a lot of background noise in this interview! You are warned! It gets a bit better halfway through, but Arthur had such great things to say, that we wanted to make sure this got to you, dear listener.
