The Sound of Applause celebrates the visual and performing arts, explores cultural trends, and examines current events through an artistic lens.
Dee Perry welcomes the two fiction and the poetry prize winners of the 2013 Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards. Joining Dee are novelist Kevin Powers who writes about the Iraq War in The Yellow Birds, novelist Laird Hunt who captures the antebellum south in Kind One, and poet Eugene Gloria who explores his Fillipino heritage in My Favorite Warlord.
Apologies to Kevin Powers for incorrectly calling his book The Three Birds rather than the correct title of The Yellow Birds.
