For February’s Word By Word: Conversations With Writers, host Gil Mansergh welcomes the award-winning novelist and writing teacher, Joshua Mohr, whose literary memoir Sirens has just been released.
Joshua earned his MFA in creative writing at San Francisco University and currently lives in San Francisco’s Mission District. His five novels are populated with word-pictures of individuals addicted to booze and drugs and alternative realities. His work has earned accolades including one of O Magazine’s "Top 10 Reads," an "Editors Choice" in theNew York Times and the Northern California Book Award.
Joshua has turned inward for his latest book, Sirens, a literary memoir that grapples with the constant challenges involved with what Meredith May calls “letting chaos flow into sordid stories.”
