Luminous Airplanes: A Novel (Farrar, Straus and Giroux)
An accessible and lively conversation about Paul La Farge's innovation of the novel form. His new novel, though it is published between covers — only represents one third of the book. The other two-thirds can be found on the website http://www.luminousairplanes.com. La Farge reveals fascinating secrets about the novel's construction, and specifically, why he spent 11 years writing a book that's part text and part website.
