While at AWP, David sat down for a discussion with Ben Tanzer. Listen in as they discuss This Is Not a Confession and the pieces within it.
Through these powerful and insightful essays, David Olimpio explores the residual effects of sexual abuse, divorce, and grief. With surprising candor and a disarming sense of humor, Olimpio takes on the outwardly wholesome landscape of his suburban Houston childhood and the complex sexual relationships in his adult life. Both poignant and poetic, This Is Not a Confession leaves us with a sense that our identities have the power to transcend our circumstances.
