Connotation Press. The March. Quasi-self indulgence. And Interview Sundays. Part Two.

More, yes, more interview, more Connotation, more excerpt, and more terrificness from the Meg Tuite, this time talking with TBWCYL, Inc. favorite and big-time supporter, the Anna March. Enjoy. And word. Big word.

Who have been some major influences in your writing career?

Soooo many.......James Baldwin. Richard Russo.  John Irving.  Ann Beattie.  Tillie Olsen.  Zora Neale Hurston. Ray Carver.  Daphne Merkin.  Lois Lowry.   Alice Walker.  Marie Howe.  Jack Gilbert.  Dai Saijie. Bob Dylan. Ellen Gilchrist.  Quincy Troupe.  Faulkner.  Faulkner.  Faulkner.

I keep a little note on my computer that says:  "Where's the heart?" -- that's from Michael Stearns.   The other note I keep there says:  "Does it hurt yet?" -- that's from Pam Houston.  Those two questions guide me.
