Arts “I’ve Always Thought a Lot About Death”: An Interview with Deborah Eisenberg
posted by March 23 at 14:30 PMon
The transcript of my interview with short-story writer Deborah Eisenberg promised in this week’s Nightstand is finally online.
Discussed: Why she had never been to Seattle before, why she isn’t published in the New Yorker anymore, having a heart made of synthetic plastic, death anxiety, the anxiety of teaching, novels versus short stories, David Lynch’s Inland Empire, how great it is that Joan Didion is still alive, the culture of brainwashing, and the addictive properties of computer solitaire.
She’s a fantastic writer and a fantastic interview subject. Enjoy.
