In the first half of this two-part interview, the first African-American woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for drama, Suzan-Lori Parks made the jump to writing novels with her book Getting Mother’s Body, a Faulknerian tale set in West Texas, told from varying points of view. She reads from this novel as well as a selection from her Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Topdog/Underdog, and talks about the differences between writing for the stage versus writing for the page.
