Book Week Canada 2011; I was one of the lucky touring authors.
Check out this interview with Literary Asylum. From the blog title alone, I knew I’d found a kindred soul.
Here’s a fun interview with the delightful Presenting Lenore. From what I understand, Lenore spends half her life in Germany and half in Kansas. I’m not sure what sort of effect that has on a person, but I’m sure scientists would be interested.
Another interview, this time with Open Book Toronto. Maybe they’re not sticklers, but I declined to mention that I’m not from Toronto.

I taped the following clips at the Simon & Schuster studio in New York, five minutes after exiting the hottest cab in the world and having no more than an hour’s sleep. I was so addled and exhausted I had to later call the publicity department and beg them not to use certain segments. At one point I remember being asked what was my favorite movie, and I answered ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’ for some inexplicable reason before launching into an impression of Gene Wilder screaming ‘The rowers keep rowing and show no sign of slowing!!!”
In hindsight, maybe we should have used that…
The video below was taped before the series launch in Montreal. This time around, I was once again running late and had to sprint up the street after getting off a really hot metro. Again I found myself wishing for powder. (You know, maybe I should start scheduling these things in winter. But then frozen schnotz might be a problem…) Anyway, after several astoundingly insightful questions from the interviewer, I conveyed the most amazing arguments, encapsulating several themes of the series such as rampant urban development and the mindless pursuit of celebrity. Naturally, it all got chopped out later. But trust me: I sounded like I knew what I was talking about.
