The Orange Eats Creeps: A discussion between Richard Thomas and Blake Butler

The Orange Eats Creeps (Two Dollar Radio) by Grace Krilanovich is one of the most challenging and simultaneously rewarding books I read in 2010. I knew that I would have difficulty with this unique debut novel, so I decided to have a conversation with fellow dark and surreal author Blake Butler over a couple of weeks to see what we could figure out. Read this lengthy conversation over at The Nervous Breakdown. If you’re looking for a book that doesn’t give it up easily, and are a fan of Burroughs, Evenson, and Erickson, this may be for you.
