Episode 183 — Matthew Savoca

   

Matthew Savoca is the guest. His new novel is called I Don’t Know I Said, and it’s available now from Publishing Genius Press.

Michael Kimball says

There’s a hell of a lot more charm in Savoca’s book than a novel about sad and smart twenty-somethings should ever have.

And Scott McClanahan says

Man, this book gets in you. It’s like baby food. You could go to the store and buy a jar and eat it with your hands, but it’d be better to have someone who shares your last name spoon it out on your tongue. After reading it, you will say, ‘Give me more, Momma.’ I want more. MORE. MORE. GIVE US MORE MATTHEW.

Monologue topics: writing, superstition, childhood, memory, punting the ball at the new girl, shooting my little sister with a slingshot.
