So, I got to blather on for an hour on internet radio, courtesy of Barry Eva and his radio show, “A Book and A Chat.” A friend of mine commented, “You’re on for an hour? Oh, good — finally you’ll have enough time to talk about yourself.” Which, y’know, hurts. But is true. (hangs head in shame) As a college girlfriend of mine once said, “Barry, you don’t talk to people — you give lectures.” Anyone who’s ever had the misfortune of asking me a simple question knows how I can stretch it out. Why do you think I write long books? It’s just an extension of the way I talk!
Anyway, as you might imagine: I had a great time. Barry asked some terrific questions (yes, I let him speak!) and we had a lot of fun discussing topics such as censorship, bullying, why I write very distinct and disparate kinds of books, and my future projects. If you’re at all interested in hearing me discuss my work in a very informal setting and if you missed the live broadcast, please check out the interview, which is now up on the web.
