Gabi Coatsworth is the one who introduced me to
the discovery of John Mc Phee when she reblogged
an article about him which was fascinating by just
a small published piece of an article he wrote. It
Came from the Fairfield Writer’s blog.
Indirectly, with this interview, I got to Ian Frazier,
who is a charismatic person in his own right and I am
sure going to look up soon enough his works too.
I then, looked John Mc Phee up on You tube and couldn’t get
enough interviews of him…
He is witty, fascinating in the knowledge that pours
out from him and a huge talent in the literate world.
I hope you will enjoy this delightful time you’ll spend

After their readings, the two writers were interviewed by Mark Singer, and today’s video features an excerpt from that conversation, which ranges from the origins of their recent work to how they’ve influenced each other over the years.
