VID 20140427 174401 393 from Lit9-11_UMD on Vimeo.

In this interview, I talk with novelist and creative writing professor Howard Norman on the critical reception to Thomas Pynchon's, Bleeding Edge. We explore expectations associated with the literature of 9/11 in relation to Pynchon's novel and how those expectations give rise to a distinct academic and literary language.
