Amelia Gray & Jac Jemc on LUCK

Amelia Gray: We’ve walked a long way together, between bars or from bars to restaurants or from bars to homes. How long do you think we’ve walked?
Jac Jemc: That’s funny. When I think of you, I usually see you walking beside me. Probably at least 30 miles, right? More? Oh, but you asked how “long” which is different than how far. A lot of hours, I think. A day has got to be too long, but I like the idea of having walked a whole day with you.

HOBART 13 bonus: Amelia Gray & Jac Jemc

Re-Tumbling because… Amelia’s THREATS is out today!!

Jac Jemc: I know you won the FC2 contest, but any other contest wins? Like a radio call-in contest or funny dance contest on spring break?

Amelia Gray: A couple summers ago I won a raffle at a summer movie series and I won $100 in grocery money! I blew it all on wine and candy. I always enter those feedback contests on receipts from grocery stores. It’s a compulsion I have, like if I see it on the receipt I have to do it. I haven’t won anything from those but the folks at Ralph’s know exactly how I feel about their tampon selection.

JJ: Do you think luck was ever a lady to begin with?

AG: Luck is a lady and lady is a tramp.

Simmons paints a loving portrait of what happened to your best friend from elementary school, the one who never moved out of his grandma’s basement. Turns out, he’s been up to some strange shit.

My blurb for Matthew Simmons’s HAPPY ROCK, coming soon. (via grayamelia)

We’ve been on tour together, renting a van with five other writers and making a road trip of it, selling books for gas money. For writers who dream of a Champagne toast over a hefty book advance, the image of Dodson and Aaron Burch of Hobart magazine pouring whiskey into soda bottles might alarm, but to us, BYOW (bring your own whiskey) fit right in with the ragtag reality of our budget.

“Hannah had a near-death kind of experience right around the time I knew him and he told us that he found Jesus in that time. I think I remember him saying that Jesus actually came into to the hospital and sat with him. He wrote in one of my books: ‘Christ is the strength that you do not have to pray for. Thereness, my lass.’”

The fist installment of a new interview series I’m doing at The Lit Pub.

For this series I’m asking the writers I love to recommend a book. If I haven’t read it, I read it. Then we talk about it.

In this installment, I’m talking with Amelia Gray about Airships by Barry Hannah.

I like this idea. And this interview in particular. And these people (Hobart 14 & 13 contribs, what-what!)

I’m sure writing is therapeutic for many writers but I think there’s a lot more than that going on here. This is a book about how strength is forged and how sometimes, we cannot help but succumb to our weaknesses.

The second installment of a new interview series I’m doing at The Lit Pub.

For this series I’m asking the writers I love to recommend a book. If I haven’t read it, I read it. Then we talk about it.

In this installment, I’m talking with Roxane Gay about Claire Vaye Watkins’s Battleborn.

Previously, I spoke with Amelia Gray about Barry Hannah’s Airships.

Colin Winnette & Roxane Gay & Claire Vaye Watkins (& previously Amelia Gray)!! It’s almost like too much Hobart goodness all up over this awesome interview series.
