Jess Row & Ollie Brock

‘What I’m most drawn to in writing about this subject is the way in which very small, intimate acts of violence (not even necessarily physical violence) often serve as a microcosm or incubator for the massive, cataclysmic violence we see all around us in the world.’

Jess Row

Jess Row is the author of the novel Your Face in Mine and two collections of short stories, The Train to Lo Wu and Nobody Ever Gets Lost. His first collection of essays, White Flights: Race, Fiction, and the American Imagination, will be published in the US next year by Graywolf. In 2007, he was one of Granta’s Best of Young American Novelists.
