The Outrider Podcast: Episode 6: Emily St. John Mandel

This week I talk with writer Emily St. John Mandel about how she went from dancing to writing, the thankless and gallant work done by small presses and how much we both appreciate the small publisher who gave us our shot, the literary scene in Brooklyn, jumping to a big publisher, and the thrill of an Australian literary festival. Emily is the author of the novels Last Night in Montreal, The Singer’s Gun, and The Lola Quartet all from Unbridled Books. You can find out more about Emily at her website And if you haven’t yet, go read them.

The Outrider Podcast is available on iTunes and Stitcher.
