AIR DATE: February 9, 2012

Blake Butler has been compared with Herman Melville and William Faulkner. His novels are disjointed and fragmentary and weird things often happen as he defies the conventions of traditional story-telling. His latest books are the novel, There is no Year and the memoir about insomnia, Nothing. Butler will be speaking at the Black Mountain Institute at UNLV.
