Lorrie Moore’s Paris Review Interview

Lorrie Moore is such an odd duck, but a genius duck in my book.  And her later short stories are so unique for their wit and language and laugh-out loud absurdity.  Here’s what Lorrie says about publishing:

So much about having a manuscript accepted is just out of your hands: the blood sugar level of a reader, the slant of light across a page, some personal event in an editor’s life that connects them profoundly with something you’ve written on page three. Who knows? There’s nothing you can do but write the best book you can.
