“The moment when I can work no more, when the novel or collection of short stories or book-length essay is as done as it’ll ever be, I go looking for works of art that match it tonally. I listen to music with an acquisitive ear. I watch pieces of movies whose titles intrigue me. Most of all, I scan through dozens of websites that collect images by contemporary artists. And then I try to solidify the relationship by using those works as my cover art.” The New Yorker’s Ben Greenman on choosing the cover art for his books.

I love getting the inside look at the outside of a book.

Ben Greenman and Darin Strauss Discuss How to Write Fiction Now

Darin Strauss and Ben Greenman live in Brooklyn. Both have written large amounts of published fiction: Strauss’s most recent book is a memoir, the National Book Critics’ Circle Award-winning Half a Life. Greenman’s new novel, The Slippage (Harper Perennial), comes out in May, and on its occasion, the two men sat down to discuss novel-writing, as well as writing that doesn’t result in novels.

Putting the interview behind a cut because it’s rather lengthy and I don’t want to interrupt your cat gifs/Sherlock set photos/inspirational quotes too much, but I do think you should click through to read their interview because it’s a doozy. Like, I’m kind of having a “whoa” moment right now.
