Nairn Holtz Interviews with Queer Women Authors
 
 

Interviews

When I published my first book and began doing media interviews, I was surprised by how rarely I was asked about my work or influences or the particular queer cultural context in which I was writing. Instead, there were questions about my process and how long it took me to write a book, which I was always tempted to answer flippantly (“oh, a month” or “I’ve been working on it since I was twelve”), as it seemed to me that what the journalist really wanted to know was whether it was possible for them to write a novel. These experiences led me to interview other queer women writers and ask them the kinds of questions I would like to be asked. Enjoy!
