Little kids tried to touch me, but their mothers held them back. I took shits wherever I wanted, drank water from the gutters when it rained. I ate trash when it looked good. I started to feel better.

Hobart 14 bonus material :: An Interview With The Author Of "The Swimmers," Andrew Bourelle (Conducted By The Narrator Of The Story)

Narrator: What’s something in the story that didn’t happen?

Andrew Bourelle: Besides the whole plot?

N: Yes. A detail that’s totally fiction.

AB: The main character’s first kiss.

N: You mean my first kiss?

AB: Yeah. I wish that was real, but it wasn’t. As shy as the main character is—I mean, as shy as you are—I was even worse.

I don&#8217;t consider myself overly nostalgic.  I typically take things from the past (from pop culture to family photos) and somehow break those images down.  I erase the identities in family photos.  I either draw VHS tapes with permanent markers or reproduce them as pixelated images.  My two overall themes are memory and change.  So the memories typically come from my youth.  I remember in the early 90s when I was in high school, I thought the 80s were so uncool and terrible and I would never look back fondly on that time, but it really was a special time.  Bright colors.  Max Headroom.  The Goonies.  The NES and digital technology in the early phases.  I think using memory and change as my main themes, I&#8217;m really concerned with mortality.  Not concern or fear or death, but that human element of knowing that we are limited.  I think using personal memories rather than a generic idea of memory makes the mortality association more subtle or balanced.

“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!)
