Jamie Parsley: The Downstairs Tenant

Mar 25, 2021

This is an expanded version of the interview that was on "Main Street".

"The Downstairs Tenant" has three sections -- first, a set of "Prairie Gothic" stories, set mostly in rural North Dakota.  They are dark, often tragic.  The second section is made up of adaptations of some of Yasunari Kawabata's "Palm of the Hand" stories -- short, short ones that are poetic and occasionally surreal.  Finally there is a play -- a straight up North Dakota ghost story.

After these
dark times

will we
still sing?

Yes, we
will sing.

We will sing
loudly and clearly

about these
dark times.
