Over at Bomb: A Somber Hope - Jordan Rothacker Interviewed


There's a brilliant new interview over at Bomb Magazine about Rothacker's newest book:


I have never met Jordan Rothacker. He has never met me. And yet we have asked each other questions that I’m not sure that we would have the courage to pose face-to-face.
