Worst-case Scenarios – Ramon Isao

2016 Jack Straw Writer Ramon Isao‘s short stories combine obsession, fear, and disaster with humor and absurdity. He talks with program Curator Karen Finneyfrock about his fascination with worst-case scenarios, his early realization that he could be a writer, and how he knows a story is finished. “I know that I’m done with them when I want them out of my life! Like, they’ve got to go.”

Music by Seattle Jazz Composers Ensemble, produced as part of the Jack Straw Artist Support Program.
