Writing the Ukulele


Over at the Los Angeles Review of Books, Steph Cha talks to Sean Carswell about his new collection of short stories, The Metaphysical Ukulele, and his writing process. Carswell recalls:

Every time I thought about consciously writing a collection, it stopped being fun. After five or six years, though, I had a dozen stories. All of the ones I’d sent out for publication got published. One won an award; two were anthologized. So, I decided, maybe a book about my favorite writers and their metaphysical ukuleles isn’t as absurd as I thought it was.
