Interview with Diane Williams

art by antonia blair

I conducted an interview with NOON editor Diane Williams for the Faster Times, in which she possibly calls me a "ho." The interview is entitled "I Dream Too About the Ideal Text" and features original art by Antonia Blair and a photograph by Alison Kuo.

TFT: At a writing conference at Brown University in 1988, a critic once asked of Donald Barthelme: “Why do you write? Who is your audience?” To which Barthelme answered matter-of-factly: “I know exactly who I’m writing for. They are extremely intelligent and physically attractive.” I have heard another writer, Lee K. Abbott, say that he writes for “the lady on the bus.” Who is it that you write for?

DIANE WILLIAMS: Why not for you?!
