Who talk in Brooklyn


I'll be reading at the Barnes & Noble on Court Street tonight at 7. (Here's the Time Out listing; I'll be taking the 2 or 3 train to Borough Hall. Then what?!)

Yet another interview with me is now available, at the blog Who Walk in Brooklyn: "Ed Park, or The Ingenuities." (Hot title!)

Sample EP pontificating: “I’ve been thinking a lot, lately, about the element of surprise. We like to be surprised by art, no? Yet we also tend to read within the genres we like—mystery novels, romance stories, ‘literary’ fiction. Certain developments and resolutions come to be expected. Much of my reading is done in this mode, but I also seek out things that I know will deploy derangements of language, adventurous forms—pushing-the-envelope stuff. (Of course, such books themselves constitute a genre.)”
