Episode One: Jonathan Evison

Michael and author Jonathan Evison sit down at DC’s Comet Ping-Pong and discuss, amongst other things, songwriting vs. writing novels, community and how it’s better than fascism, drinking, first novels not actually being your first novel, ADD, and how failure is more important than success.

Praise for Jonathan’s most recent novel, The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving:

“A most stealthily powerful novel…so poignant yet improbably funny.”
-Janet Maslin
The New York Times
