JA Tyler asks questions, I answer.

JA Tyler asked me some questions at MonkeyBicycle on September 2nd about my story in that magazine.

I remain very unsure about the role of sentences and the degree to which syntax should be a primary interest for a prose writer. While I admire Gertrude Stein and Gary Lutz and feel a degree of debt to their exploration of syntax, I find myself equally drawn to writers who are not really concerned with syntactical novelty.

For the full interview.

    Joseph Campbell said in the Power of Myth that we are a country that is at a lack of ethos. Primarily because we are the great melting pot. Regrettably the largest agent in existence filling in the lack of ethos are lawyers. Then you have that wonderful volleyball game of syntax between a static- the judge; and a non-static- the lawyer. I apologize for the courtroom model but it is an interesting use of syntax and accountability all the way up to the supreme court.
