The very contrary Mary Caponegro doesn't write or think like anyone else. She is a complete original. In the course of this interview, the snowballing perplexities of fusing logic and madness emerge with great force. Each of her stories is a triumph against nearly insuperable odds--but what a triumph!
This interview will not air on KCRW (as it will be pre-empted by special Thanksgiving programming.)
