You may remember E. Eastman’s essay “I Wear It as Often as I Dare” from issue 15.2 of Fourth Genre, in which he describes his search for a signature scent. In this episode of Off the Page, we sat down with the man behind the scent to discuss nonfiction, style, and literary crushes. Eastman received his MFA from the University of San Francisco, and won an Espy award for literature in 2005.

For optimum listening pleasure, we recommend enjoying episode 6 with the scent of your favorite perfume wafting in the air. Thanks for listening!
