I have a short(ish) essay over at Vol. 1 Brooklyn that aims to use Paul Auster’s writing to discuss the damage that comes with building walls (which, of course, is one of the main promises of a certain loud presidential candidate). I enjoyed writing it. Maybe you’ll enjoy reading it.
Aaron Burch from Hobart was kind enough to publish my tiny story, “Solicitations,” today. This is the first of two pieces that’ll be appearing at Hobart. The other should pop up sometime this fall.
I just returned from the first Barrelhouse/Hobart Writer Camp, and after spending a few days talking with other writers about writing in the Pennsylvania wilderness, I’ve been inspired to revisit all of the author interviews I’ve conducted over the years.
In case any of you want to check these out, too, I’ve made a convenient list below. Just click on the author’s name to find the interview:
Plus there’s this piece, which contains small responses from some of the above, but also Charles Baxter, Vanessa Blakeslee, Jennine Capó Crucet, Julia Elliott, Roxane Gay, Amelia Gray, Lindsay Hunter, Bret Anthony Johnston, Stephen Graham Jones, Maya Lang, Rebecca Makkai, Jess Row, Ted Thompson, Laura van den Berg, and Kevin Wilson.
