English professor Michael Lofaro spoke with WUOT All Things Considered host Brandon Hollingsworth on Monday, January 9, about writer James Agee.
Agee died in 1955, but the rediscovery of his work continues today. This month, the University of Tennessee Press will release new collections reflecting on Agee’s work as a critic and journalist.
Lofaro says while Agee is widely known for his novels, his book and film reviews are well worth examining. Lofaro led a discussion about Agee’s nonfiction work as part of the Humanities Center’s Conversations and Cocktails series earlier this month.
