Ep. 311: Ace Atkins on Race, Writing Bestselling Crime Novels, and the "New South"
Ace Atkins is a New York Times bestselling author whose novels include the Quinn Colson series and Robert B. Parker’s Spenser series. Atkins is a former newspaper reporter and SEC football player. His essays and other writing have appeared in national publications such as Time magazine and elsewhere. Ace reflects on the ghosts and demons of the color line in America and what the “New South” means to him. Ace also shares what he learned about life and the craft of writing through his journey from being a newspaper reporter to the author of bestselling crime novels. And he shares some hidden history about the true origins of Donald Trump’s “red hat” MAGA cult hate movement. Chauncey DeVega ponders the emotional valence of a Thanksgiving holiday in an age of death, economic calamity, Trumpism’s continuing assaults on democracy and human decency, and the hopeful possibilities of Joe Biden’s presidency. Chauncey also takes a culinary journey to the world of TV dinners in order to better understand why he hates the turkey that is commonly served on Thanksgiving. And of course, Chauncey DeVega shares an animal friends story about mountain gorillas, who like many humans on Thanksgiving day, enjoy singing and farting during and after they eat a tasty meal.
