is a writer & editor based in Brooklyn.
Here he is giving a lecture…
“Adventurous plot is kind of a lizard-brain thing; it’s a more ravenous pursuit than the literary. The particular flavor of ‘tingle in the spine’ that is literary fiction‘s best quality is the feeling of communion that jumps you when you finally read something you’d already known—but never in words. With literary fiction, the best quality creative writing is a conversation across time. A conversation between two people who understand each other, if only glancingly.”
