Tom McCarthy Interview


Interview Magazine talks with Tom McCarthy about his novels Remainder, C, and Men in Space (which we reviewed today). Additional topics include McCarthy’s “detour through the art world” and founding membership in the International Necronautical Society, as well as his thoughts on reading while writing.

“What’s going on in a literary work are other literary things disinterred, cannibalized, and recombined. The narrator is an anthropologist.”
