In Conversation with Mai Der Vang

Mai Der Vang's debut collection has a lot of truly exceptional poems and I talked with her for The Brooklyn Rail and we covered a lot of ground - like her poetry - about personal history and collective memory and audiences and I'm so glad that it's now out.

The Rumpus Mini-Interview Project: Max Allan Collins

I've interviewed Max Allan Collins a few times over the years, but in April he was named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, their lifetime achievement award. To mark the occasion I spoke to him for The Rumpus and we didn't talk about specific books so much or what he's working on now, but on his time at the University of Iowa Writers Workshop, Richard Yates, the Vietnam war, the influence of music on his life, and how his recent health issues and becoming a grandfather has changed him and what he wants to do next.
