For years I’ve been thinking about how to capture this eyeroll, and now I have it. This section of the blog is dedicated to interviews, lists, author reviews, etc, in which a cast of all -male authors are examined, sainted, or celebrated as the greatest influences on another male author.
In this interview, McInerney gives credit to some of the greats: Jack London, Dylan Thomas, James Joyce, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and of course, Jonathan Safron Foer. He’s really sorry he hasn’t read this one other white author, Marcel Proust.
