A reading and conversation with Dana Green, Author of Sometimes the Air in the Room Goes Missing
Dana Green’s debut collection of stories, Sometimes the Air in the Room Goes Missing, explores how storytelling changes with each iteration, each explosion, each mutation. Told through multiple versions, these are stories of weapons testing, sheep that can herd themselves into watercolors, and a pregnant woman whose water breaks every day for nine months — stories told with an unexpected syntax and a sense of déjà vu: narrative as echo.
Dana Green is the co-winner of the Tarpaulin Sky Book Prize. She received her MFA from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Denver. She lives and writes somewhere outside of Denver with her husband and cat.
