Chris L. Terry is the guest. His new novel, Black Card, is available from Catapult Press. This is Terry's second time on the podcast. He first appeared in Episode 217 on October 16, 2013. Terry was born in 1979 to an African American father and an Irish American mother. He has an BA in English from Virginia Commonwealth University and a creative writing MFA from Columbia College Chicago. His debut novel, Zero Fade, was named a Best Book of the Year by Slate and Kirkus Reviews. He lives in Los Angeles with his family. In today's monologue, I respond to listener mail and talk about the recent surge in listenership.
