All Lit Up put together a four-part series on Death and the Intern:
- Introduction and interview with publisher Leigh Nash
- All Lit Up team discussion
- Interview with yours truly
- Further reading (forthcoming)
From the interview:
JHF: I spent a lot of time walking around Koreatown (I lived with Andrew Battershill in Toronto at the time, while he was also working on his first novel, Pillow) trying to solve plot problems I’d never had to consider before, instead of just getting jacked up on coffee and vomiting uncomfortable moments from my past through a filter to try to make it more universal, which was basically my writing process before.
