Episode 1: Lisa Moore Reads and Discusses
“The Jawbone Box” by Matthew Lewis

Lisa Met Matthew Lewis three years ago, when he was a student in her
Advanced Fiction creative writing class. A pack of students from that class
formed a writing group, and continue to meet. Lisa is currently compiling
an anthology of their writing, called Racket, as she believes this new group
of Newfoundland authors will soon be making a racket in the local literary scene.

Matthew’s story here shows why she was so drawn to his work.
“The Jawbone Box” is unique piece of writing about mortality and a
powerful personal reckoning, told in a unique voice, with a sophisticated,
subtle splash of metaphor and symbolism that begs a reader’s undivided attention.

The Overcast Fiction Podcast is produced by Annie McEwen; theme music by Noah Bender.
It was inspired by The New Yorker Fiction Podcast.
