Daniel Perry from the Brockton Writers Series interviewed me in advance of my September 14 reading in Toronto

Interview

I'll be reading at the Brockton Writers Series on September 14 in Toronto. Daniel was kind enough to interview me about my writing:

BWS: One echo a premise about an anesthesiologist might create: T.S. Eliot’s “patient etherized upon a table” (“The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”). Is it just this intereviewer? Or is there a connection you could draw between that famous image and Death and the Intern? Is there something about such a metaphor that strikes you as especially relevant to our time/our literary moment?

Jeremy: I hadn’t thought about that, but now that you mention it there are a ton of parallels between Janwar’s anxiety in Death and the Intern and Prufrock’s feelings of isolation and the burden of his undefined “overwhelming question.”
