Fresh on the heels of this glowing review in The New York Times, Creative Writing Program Director Daniel Torday’s debut novel, The Last Flight of Poxl West, made the cover of the Times’ Sunday Book Review. On Tuesday, March 17, Torday sat down with Fresh Air’s Terry Gross to discuss the book.
The Last Flight of Poxl West is just out from St. Martin’s Press. His novella, The Sensualist, won the 2012 National Jewish Book Award for debut fiction. Torday’s stories and essays have appeared in Esquire, Glimmer Train, n+1, The New York Times, and The Paris Review Daily. A former editor at Esquire, Torday serves as an editor at The Kenyon Review.
