An Interview in “Contemporary Literature”

Over the course of the past few years, I’ve had the honor to be interviewed by James Peacock, a scholar whose current work addresses representations of Brooklyn in contemporary fiction. His questions have been thoughtful, insightful, often unexpected. I’m thrilled to report that the complete interview has just been published in the journal Contemporary Literature. You need to pay for online access (or buy a physical copy, or check one out at your local university library), but I’d still be thrilled if you’d like to read it!
