Writer Eric Goodman on campus April 17
Author of the new novel Twelfth and Race read fiction — and promised some vintage television writing.
The story of Eric Goodman's latest novel, Twelfth and Race, just out from University of Nebraska Press, is one of the intersection of love, race, and identity—and what happens when the death of a young black father catapults a midwestern city into chaos.
It's Goodman's fifth novel, and part of the Flyover Fiction series, edited by SCU's Ron Hansen M.A. '95, who is the Gerard Manley Hopkins, S.J. Professor of Arts and Humanities, as well as the literary editor for this magazine. Goodman's previous novels include In Days of Awe and Child of My Right Hand.
In addition to his fictioneering, Goodman is a veteran television writer, lyricist, and journalist with more than 150 articles and essays that have appeared in the likes of GQ, the Los Angeles Times Sunday Magazine, and Saveur. He directs the creative writing program at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
Goodman read from his new work on April 17 at SCU.
