Philip Connors on his book All the Wrong Places

In his debut book, Fire Season, Philip Connors beautifully recounted his decade as a fire lookout high above the Gila National Forest in southern New Mexico. Now Connors returns to our show to discuss his second book, All the Wrong Places, and why moving to remote New Mexico was so attractive and the years he spent reeling in the wake of his younger brother’s suicide. At the age of twenty-three, Connors was a young man climbing the ladder to success. He had a magazine job lined up in New York City and a future in journalism unfolding exactly as he’d hoped. Then one phone call from his brother, which he didn’t return, changed everything. Please join host Stephen Spitz and Philip Connors to learn more about this moving account of the aftermath of a very personal loss and how it lead Connors to all the wrong places. Produced with assistance of Jefferson White and Lynn Schibeci.
