Description

Phil Klay is a graduate of Dartmouth College and a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps. He served in Iraq’s Anbar Province from January 2007 to February 2008 as a Public Affairs Officer. After being discharged he went to Hunter College and received an MFA. His story “Redeployment” was originally published in Granta and is included in Fire and Forget: Short Stories from the Long War. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Granta, Tin House, and elsewhere. Oh, and in 2014 Klay’s short story collection Redeployment won the National Book Award for Fiction. He's won so many awards that I literally had to delete a paragraph from his bio, so if you're interested in learning more, head to his website, www.philklay.com. This week on Writers Who Don’t Write Phil speaks to us about writing as a veteran in America, the lens he uses to approach identity politics, and the good accomplished by troops overseas that is so often ignored.
