Joe Meno on Publishing Conglomeration and the Recession

Author Joe Meno read from his new novel at McNally Jackson Books in Manhattan last night, packing the bookstore’s coffee shop with readers despite the gloomy weather. GalleyCat caught up with Meno for this video interview, getting his passionate take on the recession and publishing conglomeration.

The new novel is entitled The Great Perhaps. Meno is also the award-winning author of other novels like “The Boy Detective Fails” and “Hairstyles of the Damned.”

Here’s Meno describing the book in a Largehearted Boy interview: “The music I kept going back to, while working on the novel, was the Beatles’ White album. I wanted the book to have the same kind of absurdity and complexity, the same breadth and span, the same sense of earnestness and humor. I wanted the writing to be dynamic, moving from quiet intimate moments to large, exaggerated ones.”
