Victor Gischler, known to the crime fiction world as the author of the Edgar-nominated GUN MONKEYS and blog favorite THE PISTOL POETS, is interviewed by his hometown newspaper, the Claremore Daily Progress. He's currently on a leave of absence but has spent the last couple of years teaching creative writing at Rogers State University in Oklahoma. The interview itself is rather facile, covering the usual bits, but Gischler sounds rather relieved that the reviews have been very kind to his latest book. Deservedly so, I might add. But anything that's as fast-paced and funny and skewers the MFA life was going to be a great read, and so it was.
