It's been a long time getting around to this, you see. I stopped doing a radio show on WKCR-FM in New York about six years ago, and ever since I've wanted to get back to talking to writers about what they do and why. I did a couple quickies for the Voice last year (such as this here), and I sort of dig the short-form interview (The Believer has the long form thing covered in their Writers Talking to Writers series). So, in this space, on no particular schedule, look to find short-ish interviews with fiction writers who have something relatively new on the shelves. I might also, very rarely, want to blabber about something I'm reading and why I like it so much. That being said, I don't plan on doing any book reviews or synopses or ad hominem attacks.
Full disclosure: I'm a writer myself and one who believes that the novel never died, and that literary fiction isn't going the way of the 8-track anytime soon. We live in a fickle culture in chaotic times and I think, wishful or not, good writing has never been so necessary.
