This co-interview was so much fun. Thanks to the prescient matchmaking of Lee Bob Black at Canteen, long-lost soul sister Alissa Nutting and I got to spend an afternoon talking about our creative processes and our first novels (mine: The Violet Hour, hers: the outrageously brilliant Tampa, about a female Humbert Humbert, which, seriously, I'm not kidding, you need to go buy and read right now). Of course we strayed to other subjects too: individualism, mosquito bites, Jerry Springer, Spring Breakers, redheads, yogurt, babies, lies.
