MFA Greensboro Alum Steve Almond Interviewed on BiblioBuffet

Drooling Fanatic: An Interview with Steve Almond

by
Tom DeMarchi

Ever since Steve Almond’s debut story collection My Life in Heavy Metal was published, I’ve been giving my friends and family Steve Almond books as gifts for major holidays. I assign his books to my classes. Steve is part of the core faculty of the writers conference I direct. And over the years Steve and I have, on occasion, socialized, which is to say we’ve broken bread (and chocolate bars) and talked about music (feverishly), and traded stories about becoming fathers (soon to be collected as The Diaper Chronicles). In other words, we’ve become friends.
