Praise for "BOMB" Magazine

"Reading "BOMB" interviews was one of the ways I began to conceive of myself as an artist."--Miranda July

"No other magazine, no other source of any kind, consistently advances so much vivid and indispensable intelligence into how art actually gets made in America and around the world as "BOMB"."
--Robert Polito, Director of the New School Graduate Writing Program

""BOMB" gives us conversation distilled into dream conversation, talk that transcends talk, thought that digs beneath transient impressions to get at the essence, the meaning, the purpose, the experience of the writing process. There is something to be remembered and learned from every one of the conversations gathered here. Read them for pleasure, for entertainment, for insight, and for clues to the mystery--to the hard labor and the profound satisfactions--of what writers do."
--Francine Prose, from her introduction
