A few months ago, I had a long email conversation with the fiction writer Andrew Farkas (Sunphere, BlaxeVox, 2019) about life, the conceptual frameworks scaffolding our books, and how we see our writing within the accelerated tragedy/oddity we call 2020-21. Fractured timelines, simple machines, metafiction in the Trump era, and the “extreme differences between characters and actual humans.” It was a rare gem, to talk shop with Andy, and perhaps, tentatively, useful and/or pleasurable in the worldings of others. I’m so happy that our conversation is now up at The Literary Review (permalink), where its ones and zeroes are mingled with a super poem by Aimee Nezhukumatathil and fiction by Timea Sipos. Give them a read!
Very excited to chat about teaching, Two Californias, and The Paradox of Wonder Woman’s Airplane with Kristina Marie Darling in Lit Pub – check it out!
