Convo with Alexander Chee & Whitney Terrell on The Millions


I talked with my friends Alexander Chee and Whitney Terrell about what it was liking taking ten years or more to write our current books. You can read the conversation, called “A Decade in the Literary Wilderness,” on The Millions. If you’ve ever wondered why your friend (partner, parent, teacher, child . . . ) was taking so long to write a book, or despaired about how long it was taking you to write one of your own, we hope this conversation will offer solace, frank talk, some explanations, and possibly even a laugh or two.
