ZZ Packer

From the archive:


ZZ Packer reads from Buffalo Soldiers, her novel-in-progress.  We talk about Drinking Coffee Elsewhere (Riverhead Books 2003) and about sending stories out into the world–and how much work it actually takes to have someone say that your prose is “effortless.” We also talk about politics, revision, and what “Sometimes You Get Lucky” means to one writer.
