George Saunders Interviews Himself

Critcally-acclaimed writer George Saunders grew up on Chicago's South Side, and his new collection of essays, The Braindead Megaphone, will be appearing on store shelves in just a couple weeks. But right now he is blogging on and recently posted an interview with himself which includes:

Q: Wasn’t Bill Clinton the President of America?
A: Yes. Yes he was.
Q: I miss him. I wish he was still President.
(A brief silence of mutual nostalgia for 1993)

You can read the full self-interview here.
