“Performing Violence: a Conversation with Jocelyn Nicole Johnson”

Back in August, I had the chance to talk with Jocelyn Nicole Johnson about her outstanding short story collection, My Monticello. Johnson’s story, “Control Negro,” was originally published in Guernica and was later featured in the Best American Short Stories 2018 anthology (edited by Roxane Gay). You can read more about her work here in our interview, now up at The Rumpus.
