New York Alki

Rumpus contributor Ryan Boudinot, author of The Littlest Hitler, talks with I09’s Charlie Jane Anders about his forthcoming novel, Blueprints for the Afterlife.

The novel takes place in a full-scale replica of Manhattan in Puget Sound (cue Synecdoche, NY comparison).  Boudinot explains how, in the novel, he strove to replicate Murakami’s ability to have, “concrete and fantastical elements peacefully coexist.”  Other influences: The Holy Mountain.
