I grew up reading David Tacey so it’s extremely exciting to get to sit down and talk to him. He was very generous with his time. Many of his books and articles are no longer in print or are behind hefty paywalls. One of the things that he offers in this interview is that any listener can send him an e-mail to request essays that were in academic journals no longer in print and he will send you the PDF. Please take him up on that as he is a fascinating writer.
