An Interview with Richard McCann
In December of 2004, writer Wesley Gibson (You Are Here: A Memoir of Arrival), met with Richard McCann in Washington, D.C. They talked about Mother of Sorrows, McCann's latest collection of short stories, but they also talked about the themes that run through McCann's poetry, essays, and fiction, about his approaches to writing in different genres, about the effect his family life has had on his work, and more. McCann's story "My Brother in the Basement" appears in this issue of Blackbird.
