Light Boxes

I interviewed the very nice Shane Jones about his excellent book Light Boxes for BlackBook. Get the book, put on Funeral by Arcade Fire, and have a great time.

Also - and I say this as someone who spent yesterday reading the faux poetic stories of a wanna-be tough guy writer who’s seriously a marshmallow, and I didn’t buy one word of it - listen to your good friend Shane Jones when he says he tried writing like Carver and Hemingway and then Marquez gave him the freedom to be whimsical. It’s really good advice.
