Archive Text: Jonathan Blum reads from his novella, Last Word.

“Blum’s Last Word explores the lengths one father will travel to know his son’s heart and the distances that son will journey to keep his heart hidden . . . Richly detailed, brimming with warmth, humor, and tenderness, Last Word is a ‘honey jar’ of a book.” — Amber Dermont

Blum’s work has been featured on The Huffington Post, KCRW’s Bookworm, and Iowa Public Radio. Blum grew up in Miami and graduated from UCLA and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. He is teaching at the Iowa Summer writing festival this summer. He lives in Los Angeles.
