Vardis Fisher and the Literature of Mormon Unbelief (feat. Michael Austin)

Hosted by Stephen Betts. 

“What I say in the book is he was a religious unbeliever, but Mormonism was the religion that he didn’t believe in, and that has consequences because what you are primarily against can define you as much as what you are primarily for. And when you see Vardis Fisher rejecting religious ideas in some of his later novels, they are Mormon ideas that he is rejecting.”
