Sam Lipsyte interview by Paul Constant of The Stranger. It’s a good one. Q: This book in particular felt Elkinish to me. And I was wondering if you were thinking about him a lot when you were writing… A: Well, I think that his example is always with me.

If you are in Seattle, Sam Lipsyte will be reading tonight at Neptune Coffee.
