Jim Shepard at the Hammer Museum

‹ Back to blog

Jim Shepard is a funny, funny man. He kept us all in stitches, even as he bemoaned the lack of importance of short stories in popular culture and the way that Europeans value writers much more than Americans do.

He read from his new, as-yet-unpublished story “Minotaur,” about the black world in the military (no, not African American circles: deep undercover circles of weapons development). Then he had a conversation with Mona Simpson, and the Hammer promises the podcast will be online soon.
