Will Oldham Narrates a “Bats of the Republic” Trailer


Zachary Thomas Dodson’s ornately-strucutured novel Bats of the Republic is having a good couple of months: most recently, it was named as one of the competitors in this year’s Tournament of Books. And now there’s a new trailer for it, narrated by one Will Oldham. This isn’t Oldham’s first literary collaboration, either: a couple of years ago, he narrated the audiobook version of Rudolph Wurlitzer’s Slow Fade. (If you’re so inclined, you can also see the video for Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s “When Thy Song Flows Through Me” at the Wall Street Journal.) You can watch the trailer for Bats of the Republic here, or below.
