PM Press: Ten Years of Literary Molotovs

From Fifth Estate, Summer 2018.

Since it is often said that if you can't say anything nice you shouldn't say anything at all... I've been standing mute for some time. I'm sick of it but I am exhausted by all the hate and all the different permutations of how my words can be, and usually is, misrepresented by the listening audience.
