Ep 332: At the Ballet with James Whiteside

Big Gay Fiction Podcast

Sep 13 2021 • 32 mins

Jeff & Will remind everyone that this month's Big Gay Fiction Book Club selection is "Running Lines" by Jeris Jean. The Book Club episode is coming up on Thursday, September 30. In addition, they also share that a previous Book Club selection, Clare London's "Romancing the Rough Diamond," is now available in audiobook narrated by Joel Leslie.

In a change from our usual interviews with fiction authors, we welcome American Ballet Theatre principal dancer James Whiteside to discuss "Center Center," his recently released memoir. James is a dancer, musician, drag performer and has now added author and audiobook narrator to his credits. He talks with us about choosing which of his life experiences to explore and how he used writing to creatively present them.

Complete shownotes for episode 332 along with a transcript of the show are at BigGayFictionPodcast.com.
