NICK ANTOSCA: Okay, normally they do self-interviews here, where the author just interviews him- or herself. But I didn’t want to do that, so in this case two authors are going to interview each other. We both have books out. Mine is The Girlfriend Game, a collection of stories which came out last month. Yours is Threats, a novel which came out last year and was nominated for the PEN/Faulkner. We both live in Los Angeles. We both moved here in the last few years.
It seems like a lot of writers are moving out here. I came because I wanted to write for TV. Why did you come? A disproportionate number of serial killers have lived in Southern California. Why do you think that is?
