Marlon James, author of 'Moon Witch, Spider King,' the second book in the Dark Star trilogy

Marlon James is an award-winning author, a podcast host, a professor of English at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, and the executive producer of the screen adaptation of the first book in his Dark Star trilogy, Black Leopard, Red Wolf. The second book in the trilogy, Moon Witch, Spider King, was released recently and I had the pleasure of visiting with Marlon James about that book and so much more. I’m Beth Golay, this is Marginalia, and here’s our conversation.

Moon Witch, Spider King by Marlon James was published by Riverhead Books.
