Writing About Writing

Andrew Sean Greer moderated by Bee Rowlatt

Andrew Sean Greer’s relentless lampooning of the literary world , Less won the 2018 Pulitzer prize for fiction. This novel about a novelist tells us about ‘the crazy quilt of a writer’s life: warm enough, though it never quite covers the toes.’ Here, he speaks of the highs and lows of the writing life, of the doubts and epiphanies in the constant struggle for experience and self expression, and what it means to be writing about writing.
