first book interview: brent goodman
It's tempting to believe that the only important books being published are those seen advertised as contest winners in Poets & Writers, but this is not the case.

It's the living manuscript that ultimately finds its readers, so the circumstances surrounding how the book gets published shouldn't concern us much.
