In addition to being a class act and a great writer, Brad Listi is a total natural as an interviewer. It's a hard thing to be good at, but he's nailed it over and over at his Other People podcast, with guests ranging from Cheryl Strayed and Susan Orlean to Cal Morgan and Roxane Gay to Molly Ringwald and... Yeah, I don't know who to put up there with Molly Ringwald. Point being: huge thanks to Brad for inviting me on the show.
Many thanks to Mike Meginnis for his time and terrific questions, and to HTML Giant for the sweet location. In his intro Mike says that you should skip the ending, where the internet connection starts to disintegrate and we can't hear what the other person is saying, but I think it's the VERY BEST PART. Bonus points to all those who catch me saying "e-book" when I mean "e-reader," and pronouncing "rock" weirdly, and being bad at math.
Many thanks to Pasha Malla for the terrific questions, and to Rebecca Rubenstein and Stephen Elliott for the prime real estate.
Many thanks to Chris Narozny for reading (and recommending) Pacazo: “Roy Kesey’s Pacazo offers just about everything you could ever think to love in a novel: a narrator with a keen mind and a messy life; paragraphs that, structurally, move like sonnets; and a clearly delineated plot serving as a kind of mooring post for digressions that, in true Cervantean fashion, are not digressions at all but rather the real substance of the book... This is the best novel I’ve read in a long while.”
Still ten days away from going live in London, but Pacazo just got its first major review there, by David Annand at The Daily Telegraph.
Kind words for Pacazo at The Kenyon Review--many thanks to Christian TeBordo.
Many thanks to Christopher Vaughan for the good questions, and to Bookslut for the snazzy real estate.
