New Story and Video: Little Joe
Little Joe is a standalone short story written by Willy. The video features cinematography by Brad Beenders, edited by Zach Jones, and music by Willy Vlautin and Paul Brainard. The video is a specially made commission for the 2021 Gordon Burn Prize as part of the Durham Book Festival, a Durham County Council event. If you're ever wondering how Willy's songs and stories relate to one another, listen to Wake Up Ray by Richmond Fontaine. Like he often says, "The songs and stories all live in the same apartment building so they can't help but run into each other."
