50! Episode 50! I'm so happy to celebrate this milestone with my guest Daniel Kraus, whose most recent book, The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch, was named one of Entertainment Weekly's Top 10 Books for 2015 shortly after we recorded this conversation. It's a meaty one, this conversation, from what it means to finish a project twenty years in the making, to the desire to divorce yourself from the reception of your work--if that's even possible--to building a career as a weekend novelist. We also talked about Daniel's filmmaking career, defying genre labels, going "off-brand", and the strange relationship between readers and writers on social media.
