Elizabeth Lopeman – Trans Europe Express

Late Night Conversation, hosted by Paul Martone

Tonight we feature Elizabeth Lopeman, author of the debut story collection Trans Europe Express (Propeller Books), in conversation with fellow Propeller author Mary Rechner. Propeller Books is an independent press run by a group of writers and editors interested in creating well designed books of high literary merit.

Elizabeth and Mary’s conversation was recorded before a live audience at Broadway Books, a locally owned, independent bookstore in Portland, Oregon.



Art that is universal is honest. There’s a kind of honesty that shines through. Whether it’s a piece of poetry or a painting, I think really good art has something that transcends.
