We talked to novelist Hari Kunzru about his newest book, White Tears for WLIW’s new online interview show Author Imprint. White Tears is a ghost story that explores America’s racial tensions through the history of the Blues. The book begins in modern-day Williamsburg with a young music producer named Seth, who comes across a mysterious Blues song that sends him on a surreal, terrifying journey through time and space. Soon, Seth starts to realize the past might not be buried after all.
