Q&A With Lynn Lurie

January 7, 2015 at 6:52 pm Leave a comment

In early December, we had the chance to hear Lynn Lurie read from her latest novel, Quick Kills, alongside Atticus Lish.  We would like to thank her for participating in the event and taking the time to answer a few questions about her personal reading and writing.  If you haven’t check it out already, be sure to also read our Q&A with Atticus Lish.

How did you come to write Quick Kills?
Quick Kills was the result of fragments of images that came to me. Photographs I had once taken but had lost. I tried to resurrect some of the scenes and began writing a narrative to link the pieces into a coherent whole.


What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading I Am China by Xiaolu Guo.

Is there anything you are looking forward to the publication of?
If Fleur Jaeggy were to write another novel to be translated to English I would be very happy.

Any upcoming book projects in the works that you can tell us about?
I am scribbling down things and have no idea where they will lead. Most likely a novel as I am not adept at short stories. I would love to write something funny.
