Padgett Powell is an acclaimed writer of very stylised fiction and, in an extract from The Interrogative Mood, he weaves curious questions in a truly haunting manner.
In this amusing sonata of bizarre questions by the award-winning author, three voices ask the listener seemingly random thoughts to a soundtrack of American music.
In the introduction, the author himself explains the peculiar circumstances that led him to create the work.
The readers are Liza Ross, Garrick Hagon and Robert Ravelli.
