Brian Phillips: Impossible Owls

Hosted by

Obsessiveness unifies essays concerning dog sledding, sumo wrestling, invisible tigers, Russian animation, Route 66, and more; interspersed with the animal that tends to appear around paranormal events: owls. Brian Phillips discusses finding a topic that captivates him, then researching it to a point approaching the unknowable. His restless imagination brings lyrical essays to a narrative border in his debut book,  Impossible Owls .
