Austin Grossman and "You"

I had the chance recently to speak with Austin Grossman, the novelist and video game writer about his new project, "You." The novel is about a group of people who work in the video game industry, and I'm sure for people who are in the world or deeply familiar with it, there will be plenty to think about in the book, but it's much more than that. It's about games and fantasy more generally, about why we need escape from our lives and how they can enrich us.

It's not a book for everyone, and I don't think it has the built-in audience that his first novel "Soon I Will Be Invincible" had, but it's a thoughtful, rewarding book and a fun read.
