Brandon Taylor: American Intimacy image

In the eagerly awaited follow-up to the Booker Prize-shortlisted Real Life, Brandon Taylor’s new novel The Late Americans follows a social circle of friends and students in Iowa City, as they grapple with their ambitions and desires while running afoul of various volatile figures in the town. Intense, sexy, and heart-breaking, Taylor’s literary star continues to ascend with this new work. In conversation with Andrés N Ordorica.
