Tariq Shah presents Whiteout Conditions
In conversation with Lee Clay Johnson
St. Joseph’s College Writer’s Foundry alum Tariq Shah combines poetic prose and witty dialogue in a moody, slow-burn character study of childhood friends Ant and Vince, reuniting for the funeral of Vince’s cousin, Ray. In this exploration of male friendship, toxic masculinity, grief, violence, prescription drug abuse, and working class life in the suburban Midwest, Shah emerges as an impressive new voice willing to mine the darkness of his characters’ psyches. From the moment Vince picks up Ant from the Chicago airport, you know where they’re headed is no place good. Joining Shah in conversation online is Lee Clay Johnson, author of Nitro Mountain and Director of the Writer’s Foundry.
