A screenwriter, fiction writer and poet, Debra Di Blasi’s work has been called “postmodern American gothic,” probably because of her scrutiny of the tensions and divisions that arise in human relationships from differences in culture, class, sex and age.  She talks about her 1999 collection of edgy short stories, Prayers of an Accidental Nature, and about her novella, Drought, which was made into an award-winning short film that and shown at the Cannes Film Festival.
