If you had to brag about yourself:
i would say i think my book Person/a is better than a lot of books i see winning awards and getting written up in the NYT and prominently displayed on tables in bookstores
Your writer crush:
oh, man, it’s been so long since i’ve had a writer crush. i really want one. but, sadly, nothing. maybe we need some new blood. some ppl willing to take risks again, stop caring abt their reputations which at present can cost you your career. so i get it. but fuck. you still have to take risks. or all we’re left with are novels like Lincoln in the Bardo, the ‘safest’ novel ever to be written. yawn.
