88: Jonathan Ames (YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE) & Leonard Gardner’s FAT CITY
Jonathan Ames, writer of novels like Wake Up, Sir and I Pass Like Night, as well as series creator of Bored to Death and Blunt Talk, sits down in the Damn Library to talk his new pulp novella, You Were Never Really Here, as well as how he wrote funny to please his mom, actors he has loved working with, and why pulp interested him. We also get to chatting about Leonard Gardner’s Fat City and terrible cases of second-novel-itis. Also, stop using straws.
