Dennis James Sweeney interview in BOMB Magazine

April 20, 2021

Dennis James Sweeney, the author of In the Antarctic Circle, was recently interviewed in BOMB Magazine. We found this in-depth conversation about identity, landscapes, hybrid forms, and more fascinating:

 “I believed these pieces were about isolation, about loneliness, about the unnameable terror of confronting oneself on a vast white plane, but because I had seen so few white writers acknowledge their work’s relationship with whiteness, I had a hard time grasping this part of my writing. At the same time, I couldn’t ignore the coordinates’ unsettling white imagery. Where did it come from?”

Thank you to interviewer Erica Trabold and BOMB Magazine for sharing this delightful conversation. Read the full interview on Bomb Magazine’s website.
