Jami Attenberg and Kate Christensen

March 5, 2009

We had a fantastic event with Jami and Kate on Tuesday.

That’s Kate on the left and Jami and the right.

Jami read from THE KEPT MAN, as well as a piece from the manuscript she’s working on.  And then the conversation got REALLY interesting.

Kate grilled Jami about sex, drugs, and the creative process.  They talked about writing sex scenes, the ways in which doing drugs changes the perception of reality (and how that comes through in writing), and the ways in which writing can be so hard that we’d do anything not to do it.

Both of these books are recommended by WORD staff, and signed copies are currently available in the store!
