Our conversation with Gilbert Sorrentino continues. The great experimentalist discusses the art of parody -- in this case his recent hilarious novel Gold Fools (Green Integer Books), in which he "doctors" an old Western novel by reshaping the story into a non-stop interrogation, ultimately questioning manhood and the dream of the American West. gold_fools.jpg
