Mira Jacob & Scott Cheshire

Mira Jacob selected fellow novelist Scott Cheshire to discuss process, epiphany, and race in the era of Trump. Jacob considers how to write unflinchingly about the realities of contemporary American life—with horror and humor—as well as the hard choice between vengeance and clarity.

Mira Jacob is the author of the novel The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing and the graphic memoir Good Talk, which is being adapted into a television series. She is currently a visiting professor in the Creative Writing MFA at the New School.

Scott Cheshire is the author of the novel High As the Horses' Bridles, a Best Book of 2014 pick at The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, New York Magazine, and Electric Literature.

About

FUSE: A BOMB Podcast extends BOMB’s longstanding commitment to bringing together artists across disciplines to discuss their work and creative practice. Departing from the typical podcast format, there’s no host, no moderator, just two artists in dialogue, unfiltered. Listeners experience the conversation as if they were in the room with the artists.

Here’s how FUSE works:

In each episode, BOMB invites an artist to choose a guest from any creative discipline —

an art crush, a close collaborator, or even a stranger they’ve admired from afar

—and we bring them together.

The result? Candid, unfiltered conversations on art, what inspires it, how it’s made, and what we can learn from it.
