I started 2015 off reading The Last Illusion by Porochista Khakpour and it turned out to be the one of the most enjoyable reading experiences I’ve had in years. As I read I kept thinking about how much I would like to talk to her about the book, so I bucked my usual reluctance to pester people and reached out to Porochista on Twitter and the folks at Electric Literature to see if they’d be interested in an interview. Lo and behold both parties were down for some fun.
I’m extremely proud of how the interview turned out, and it’s reinvigorated me in many ways. I’m looking forward to doing many more of these in the future.
