The Next Big Thing - Hoks

I was tagged by Toby Altman, in this relay interview project called "The Next Big Thing."


What is the working title of the book?

The Narrow Circle

-Where did the idea come from for the book?

Since ideas are inspiration in the abstract, I'm just going to answer this question with the inspiration question below. 

-Who or what inspired you to write this book?

A combination of: having a child; spending time as a "stay-at-home" dad; getting magnetized by poems I read; trying to crisscross the boundaries between self and other; having a body; digging tunnels between zones of experience; burrowing in general; my lover's taco-shell lips.

-What genre does your book fall under?


-What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?

Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore, and John Turturro would all have roles. 

-What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?

"I was in love with the apple tree, the invisible city that seemed to be growing inside it." 

-How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?

About 1 year. Other drafts took other years.

-What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

It has many pictures in it! 

-Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
