There's a long audio interview with me about Midnight Picnic up at The Bat Segundo Show, click here. We did this interview earlier in the winter, right before the original release date. It's quite long (and there's an odd preface). We're in a sushi restaurant. There's a lot of uhhhhmms and you knows. I sound a little confused/nonsensical, I think.
Listen to the interview... then buy Midnight Picnic from the publisher (not Amazon!).
If you're not familiar with The Bat Segundo Show, you should maybe get familiar with it. Ed just brings his recording equipment and sits down with authors for interviews that are long, strange, comprehensive, and uncut. Archives are here. They include Bret Easton Ellis, David Lynch, Martin Amis, Charlie Kaufman, Neal Stephenson, Marilynne Robinson, Ethan Canin, Tao Lin, Grandmaster Flash, Richard Price, George Saunders, Richard Ford, Kelly Link, Mark Z. Danielewski, Jonathan Safran Foer, John Updike and 100+ others, so basically many of my favorite living authors.
