From John D’Agata

From John D’Agata:

“Writing is a triumph. I mean that. For me, figuring out how to complete a sentence equals triumph. The majority of the sentences that I start never get completed. So if I can find my way to the end of a sentence and still like that sentence by the time I’m done, I’m kicking ass. I’m ecstatic. Writing is a triumph.”

This is from The Days of Yore, which has a lot of good interviews.

D’Agata’s coming to Wyoming tomorrow, and will stay for about ten days. There will be a reading next week.

Welcome, John.
