Dan White’s 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. We also talked about his abandonment of satire, why he got sick of New York, how aging and life in the Central Coast changed his outlook, and while he still loathes social media. 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!
