My in-depth interview with Jonathan Franzen in Catamaran lit magazine
This winter, Jonathan Franzen invited me to his Santa Cruz home where we talked about the consuming process of bringing characters to life.

Here is my interview with him, which appears in the latest edition of Catamaran lit magazine. Make sure to go out and get a hard copy at your local indie bookstore, or send in to subscribe!
