The Disresptful Interviewer: Thirteen Interviews with Authors by Lauren Baratz-Logsted
Publisher: Hat City Press ( March 2013)
I received a complimentary copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Just what the title promises! Thirteen disrespectful interviews with authors, including: Chris Cleave, Jon Clinch, Tish Cohen, Joseph Finder, Kristy Kiernan, A.S. King, J.A. Konrath, Greg Logsted, Lisa McMann, Lynn Price, Lev Raphael, Adriana Trigiana...and Lauren Baratz-Logsted - discover new favorites and see some of your favorite authors, like you've never seen them before!
These interviews were conducted when the author was " Writer-in Residence" in 2009-10 at the literary e-zine BiblioBuffet, which is now defunct. She wanted her interviews to be different so she decided to diss the authors, the result of which is now this tongue-in-cheeky book. I know for me when I have to interview someone I feel as if my IQ drops bout 40 points...and that's sad, cause I'm none too bright anyway. She ratchets up the snark and the authors give snarky answers right back. It's right up my alley.
I confess I was only familiar with a few of the authors interviewed and of the others I was woefully ignorant. Now I want to add their books to my already towering tbr pile. Yay. Now, I have to go- General Hospital is coming on in 2 hours and 37 minutes.
For this delightful snark fest, I'm giving the book:
