Barbara Newhall Follett – The House Without Windows

Late Night Love Affair, hosted by Candace Opper and Sarah Marshall

This month Candace and Sarah discuss Barbara Newhall Follett’s The House Without Windows, published in 1927 when Follett was only twelve years old. Topics of conversation include Charles in Charge, the mechanics of kid-writing, Into the Wild, Hocus Pocus, the preposterous nature of shoelessness, Yvette Vickers, The Maine Hermit, and bozo parents interfering with your call to a greater destiny.

Listen here…

You will go and you will be a friend to all beasts and plants and you will be provided for through some sort of magic, as opposed to your feet will fall off and you will have to eat your own hair.

Candace Opper and Sarah Marshall met in the MFA creative writing program at Portland State. They share a love of slasher films, George C. Scott, conspiracy theory, Stephen King, VCRs, air-popped popcorn, Jurassic Park, and discussing over coffee their obsessions with suicide and serial killers, respectively.
