Big thanks to Dan Cafaro of Atticus Books for an inventive interview with two of the most colorful characters from The Grievers, Charley Schwartz and Greg Packer! I’m a huge fan of the titles that Atticus has produced, especially The Snow Whale, The Great Lenore, and Fight for Your Long Day. I was also blown away by their latest title, Kino by Jurgen Fauth, so it was especially flattering when Dan offered to interview me on his press’s book blog. Needless to say, I’m also struck by his generosity and the generosity of the small press scene in general. After all, how many big publishers offer to help with promoting titles by “the competition”? Then again, it isn’t competition when good people like Dan remind us that we’re all in it together–writing, reading, making art, and changing the world a little bit at a time!
