Conversations with Jon Hassler

0.0  ·  Rating Details ·  0 Ratings  ·  0 Reviews
During his early years as an aspiring novelist, Jon Hassler drew inspiration from author interviews that appeared regularly in the ''Paris Review.'' In the years preceding Hassler's death in 2008, his long-time friend Joe Plut returned the favor, interviewing Jon about the origins, publication history, themes and anecdotes associated with each of his nine popular novels.

This is a book strictly for fans of Jon Hassler. It was a pleasure to read these interviews as he discusses the motivations of each of his novels. Most of the events in his novels were inspired by people and situations he took part in. Again, of little interest to those not familiar with his novels.

While it is often the case that Plut's questions and observations are much more informative than Hassler's responses, this collection of interviews reminded me why I enjoyed reading Hassler's novels. I am even tempted to reread at least Simon's Night. I found tidbits about the publishing world as interesting as the insights into the creative process.
