Max Barry Interview

Max Barry, author of Jennifer Government and Company, is interviewed by Mike Atherton on the "Great Writing" website. I'm not sure how old this interview is, though as it refers to Company coming out "next year", I can only assume it's from the end of last year. "I understand that for a lot of people, the US is superior to their country of residence in myriad ways, but I'm Australian. We have it all: the weather, the beautiful cities, the brand of football that involves neither padding yourself up like Santa Claus nor standing in a line in front of goal and covering your testicles... I'm very happy about having been born in Australia. It was a close thing, too; my parents are both New Zealanders. That wakes me up in a cold sweat sometimes."
