How to Proceed – with Emmanuel Carrère!
A new episode in our podcast with Linn Ullmann
In this episode, the French writer Emmanuel Carrère talks to Linn Ullmann about depression and how to write about something that can´t really be put into words, the question of form and truth, right and wrong and writing about the self and others. He also talks about his love for ghost stories, poetry and the gospels – “Christianity,” he says, “is perhaps more about being a bad Christian than a good Christian”.

Carrère was the very last guest in our How to Proceed podcast. In our final epilogue, you can hear Linn Ullmann along with the other interviewers of the season, reading the poem “Having it Out With Melancholy”. Listen here:
