Interview with Jonah Andrist

You're going to have drinks with three writers, dead or alive, who do you choose?
Wow, you know I'm always asking myself questions but this takes it to a new level.
Though I feel a little ok about it since I'm stealing it from the NYT and it's a question I think I've got a good answer to (that is, I've already thought about my answer, perhaps more than I should have). Is this an interesting system us interviewing ourselves? It seems weird. Narcissistic? I'll get past it.
All right, here goes. Beckett. Barthelme. Bellow.
Beckett and Barthelme because I read once that Barthelme was a very big admirer of Beckett. In his own words "he allowed me to write". I want to watch how someone acts around their idol. It'll distract me from getting too nervous around them. Then hopefully me and Bellow could casually chat and just listen, and I'll give reassuring advice about why he's there in immortal spirit, and the whole thing won't really be about me and that'll be best.

The Budding Madscientist Attempts Cold Fusion
You set the price! Words: 41,510. Language: English. Published: December 1, 2016. Categories: Fiction » Literature » Literary, Fiction » Mashups
A collection of interconnected short stories centering around two young men traveling around America drinking in dive bars. Influences and meta-commentary on road trip stories, peppered with poetry, reflections on movies and love. Some post-modern influences. Though the style, in my own phrasing would be; cerebralism. A mix of the overly cerebral and realistic.
