Pulitzer prize and National Book Award-finalist Christine Schutt talks with David Naimon about her latest story collection Pure Hollywood. “Nobody writes like Schutt . . . and her latest collection is the perfect entry point for readers new to her work . . . In each of the collection’s 11 stories, Schutt gives readers dissipated women staggering to the brink of sanity, desperate men with foggy intentions, and an eerie atmosphere that radiates menace, sexuality, and murder . . . Schutt is always in control in this work by an experimental American writer of unparalleled style.”—Publishers Weekly
