How do you get up in the morning?
Most of the time.
Do you succumb to nostalgia?
Do you write long and cut, or short and backfill?
How do you feel about your Wikipedia entry?
It’s in that weird zone where my name is red. I’m mentioned in the page for The Coming Insurrection, and that seems good enough for now.
Lunch with any three people who ever lived; who do you invite?
John Berger, Jeanette Winterson, Kristen Stewart. Dead people don’t answer invites that well. Not that John Berger does either, but a guy can dream.
Best piece of advice you ever received?
Disciplined or hot dog?
Have you ever been defeated by a genre?
Which classic author would you like to see kicked out of the pantheon?
I think we could do without the novelists for a little while.
Are you okay with blood?
Who is your imagined audience? Does it at all coincide with the real one?
God I hope so. Really smart and curious 17 year olds with access to Wikipedia and a conflicted relationship to the legitimacy conferred on writers by publications.
What country would you want to be exiled in?
Canada, easiest place for cross-border raids.
What’s your favorite negative emotion?
Is your study neat, or, like John Muir’s, is your desk and floor covered in “lateral, medial, and terminal moraines”?
I keep my room neat.
What is your go-to shoe?
What's your poison?
Weed, cigarettes, and coffee, in that order.
What's your problem?
I love bad bitches, that's my fucking problem.
