Outside the Lines With Rap Genius – New Podcast! Author T.M. Wolf (#48) LyricsEmbed
This episode of Outside the Lines With Rap Genius, we bring you an interview with writer T.M. Wolf. Wolf is the author of Sound, one of the most awesome novels we've seen in years. Check out an excerpt, annotated by the author, on Rap Genius
The book tells the story of Cincy, a former grad student who returns to his Jersey shore hometown for a summer and falls in love and into a mystery. But it's how the book is written that's a kicker. Wolf uses techniques he learned from hip-hop (layering, repetition with variation, and more) to create a book that looks different from anything we've ever seen. Listen to find out more!
If you enjoy our interview, you can check out annotated show excerpts (with notes by Wolf himself!). You can also see T.M.'s verified Rap Genius account.
