The Shit You Pull Out Of Your Ass

How's this for a catchy line from an interview?

So, why do you think anyone would pay to read the shit you pull out of your ass?

In a recent interview with Andrew Pyper about his new novel The Killing Circle, Claire Cameron gets away with asking that question without offending him.

Why?

Because she's quoting one of her favourite lines from Pyper's new novel -- a fantastic thriller that I quite enjoyed.

The interview, which was posted on BookNinja runs about 13 minutes and is a great one, particularly when Andrew starts talking about the seeming reluctance of the "decision" makers at the gates of "Canadian Literature" to open the doors to a wider spectrum of fiction (ie more, commercial, genre or plot-driven fiction). Or, as he puts it half tongue-in-cheek "books with a plot."

This interview is a great discussion about Pyper's new novel and about his work in general (which is a fantastic cross-over between literary fiction and thriller fiction) and is definitely worth checking out. Right click here to download the interview.

Speaking of literary thriller crossover's the interviewee herself, Claire Cameron is also a talented writer and the author of The Line Painter.

Hey Mark --

Glad you enjoyed the novel! And yes, it is remarkable that someone could get away with asking me such a question....thankfully I remembered it was in the book!
