Author, Leslie Pietrzyk, Interviews Reuben Jackson
How "Scattered Clouds" got its title and more in this short and sweet interview of Reuben Jackson conducted by local luminary, Leslie Pietrzyk.
Author of critical darling Silver Girl (and favorite of many here at ASP) and local literary hero, Leslie Pietrzyk, is the perfect person to prod Reuben Jackson into talking strictly of his own work. There are no anecdotal digressions nor educated musings on Herbie Hancock and the Beatles in this interview, only Reuben speaking on Scattered Clouds and his writing philosophy.
"Keep moving the thematic furniture around. Revision is possibility!"
Says Reuben in response to Leslie asking his favorite piece of "writing advice." Do check out the full interview over on Leslie's blog—it's worth the time.
