Author Interview: Jon Harrison

Thank you to Jon Harrison for allowing me to read and review The Banks of Certain Rivers and send some questions his way.  Here are his answers:

1.  What do you find yourself rambling about?

I read a lot of non-fiction, so I tend to go on-and-on about whatever it is I'm reading about at the time to whomever happens to be nearby.  For instance, after finishing Jon Gertner's The Idea Factory last year, I could not stop talking about it.  Who knew the story around the invention of the transistor could be not only fascinating, but heartbreaking too?

2.  What has been the greatest thing to happen since your first book was released?

The launch party for my first book was a blast.

3.  If you could put your book into any one person's hands, who would that be?

Anyone who loves reading would be perfect.

4.  What part of the writing process did you enjoy the most?

I enjoy the revising most.  But finishing is pretty great too.

5. What is next on your plate?

I'm taking an extended break from writing, and I plan to run a lot this summer.

Thank you to Jon Harrison for answering my questions!

  1. Nice interview. I remember reading Savage Inequalities by Jonathan Kozol and reading passages from it to anyone who would listen because I was so appalled that kids were attending school in such awful conditions.
