A 2003 interview with reviewer and blogger BookSlut and Steve Almond

Steve Almond, who Our Stories will interview in our upcoming issue, talked to BookSlut back in August of 2003 about My Life in Heavy Metal & Candyfreak: A Journey Through the Chocolate Underbelly of America...

Favorite Steve Almond quote: "We've got an anemic literary culture in this country, and we've got to find a way to make people understand how important literature is. That task sounds gushy, but I really think it's the job of literature to awaken mercy in people."
