I interview Darin Strauss and discuss his life, career, and approaches to writing fiction. Darin's latest book, The Queen of Tuesday, was just released in paperback. The book, Darin's follow-up to his best-selling National Book Critics Circle Award-winner, Half a Life, is highly acclaimed and was a finalist for the Joyce Carol Oates Award in Fiction. Darin's also a professor of creative writing at the New York University Creative Writing Program. I'm lucky enough to have studied under him. He's a phenomenal teacher and writer and mentor and friend. You can follow him on twitter at @darinstrauss. A few announcements: You can now support us on Patreon at Patreon.com/selectedprose and access cool (and exclusive) stuff like signed books and newsletters and promotions for your work. I'm giving away a free (and new) copy of David Nutt's The Great American Suction, from Tyrant Books. To win, just tweet @selectedprose with a comment about your favorite interview so far, or someone you'd like to see on the show. See you next time.
