Michael Arceneaux’s Faith: Beyoncé, Writing, And Romance

Michael Arceneaux joins co-hosts Eric Newman and Medaya Ocher to discuss the first collection of his writing, the critically heralded I Can’t Date Jesus: Love, Sex, Family, Race and Other Reasons I’ve Put My Faith in Beyoncé. If ever a LARB podcast captured the texture of an author’s writing, this may be it. After Michael opens the show, fittingly, by reading a passage from his book, he and Eric begin with reflections on their shared experience of growing up Queer and Catholic in the South. The conversation then moves seamlessly through matters of faith, family, race, writing and gay dating culture — all of it infused with Michael’s wit. Along the way, amidst the laughter, much is revealed about our deepest shared desires.
