Interview with a New Yorker Writer

How are things in the world of New York City “Big Five” conglomerate publishing?

We at NEW POP LIT took a break from creating an alternative long enough to interview John Colapinto, staff writer at The New Yorker. What he has to say about his own difficulties is revealing. You’ll not read a stronger interview anywhere.


Read the story and interview—then let us know what you think.

The solution I'm going to try is self publishing a genre novel (crime thriller) that presents my take on the state of things as well or maybe better than literachur could.
Mike Johnson, a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, has returned from combat to the city of his birth, Los Angeles. Unfit for a post in law enforcement due to his suffering from a severe case of PTSD, he resigns himself to working for a private security company tasked with protecting Hollywood’s rich and famous. Unfortunately for our protagonist a murderous cult of celebrity stalkers has just embarked upon a campaign of terror targeting the very stars that he is paid to protect. Will he be able to ferret out these deranged albeit crafty killers, or shall he become another one of their victims? And will he be able to deal with the sinister sect’s increasingly brutal and perverse methods without losing his mind?
Will this prove viable? Probably not but I've got nothing else going on.
