The Interruption With Sean Michaels


Hi everyone! Welcome back to The Interruption, a 49th Shelf–Books on the Radio collaboration in which I interview Canadian writers about the surprising things that inform, inspire, and even interrupt their creative process.

Today I chat with the Sean Michaels, author of the Scotiabank Giller Prize-winning novel, Us Conductors, and creator of the influential music blog, Said the Grammophone. Sean's writing has been published in all the high quality places such as The Guardian, The Believer, Pitchfork, Maisonneuve, the Globe and Mail, and the National Post. He cut his teeth on the web and won Canada's biggest prize for fiction with one of those print book artifacts (Us Conductors). He has won a couple of Canadian National Magazine Awards and is basically amazing. You can find out more about Us Conductors online at and you can find his writing about music and culture at

The Interruption always features two podcast selections for your listening enjoyment: the first podcast features my interview with Sean. The second podcast features a unique reading from Us Conductors.

Thank you for listening.
