I'm tired, and I can't bring myself to go digging all over the internet, but I will point out a couple of quick things for your reading enjoyment:
- Avery Anthology has published an interview with Dan Chaon, in which he discusses his writing method, music, teaching, and reading. Highly recommended: "After that, I have two more novels that are in partial states of development, one called I Wake Up, about a kid who has been in various foster homes for many years when he’s contacted by a woman claiming to be his mother; and the other called Ill Will, about a man whose brother murdered their parents in the 1970s.
And after that, I want to finish a short story collection.
Which should take me close to the end of my life, I imagine."
- Salon has started a week dedicated to pork. Yum. Perhaps they'll discuss Pork & Sons, the coolest cookbook of the past few years.
