Alexander Tilney is the author of the novel The Expectations, published by Little, Brown. A graduate of the Warren Wilson College MFA Program for Writers and a fellow at MacDowell, his writing has appeared in The Southwest Review, The Journal of the Office for Creative Research, and Gelf Magazine.
“One of the things that was really important to me was to find a structure that was different in order to talk about nature, to talk about climate change.” Alexander Tilney asks Madeleine Watts about writing climate change and her debut novel, The Inland Sea.
“I saw a parallel in the way the body attacks itself in an autoimmune disease to the way guilt attacks the mind. The bodies of many of these characters define, in some ways, the boundaries of their lives.” Alexander Tilney talks with the most recent Prairie Schooner Book Prize winner, Megan Cummins, about her short story collection If the Body Allows It.
