This conversation provides a mini-course in short-story writing, George Saunders-style. Using the suggestions found in The Braindead Megaphone (Riverhead), a book of essays, we explore the construction of short fiction from the ground up. Given this writer's shoot-from-the-hip stance, the instruction is funny as well as practical.
