Grub Daily has a micro-interview with Alexander Chee. The author discusses the hardest writing criticism to give and receive, strange reader interactions, Middle-Earth, advice for would-be writers, and what he looks for in a new work.
“As a reader, I am something of a thrill-seeker. I want to open something and feel it just blast the bullshit and numbness off of my life. I want to feel like I’m looking into the sun.”
