Indiana on Silverblatt's Bookworm

"Out of fantasias of the past (Fu Manchu novels, exotic Hollywood films, documents of "friendly" imperialism from the twenties to the forties), Gary Indiana concocts the nightmare present of The Shanghai Gesture, a book that takes the current fashion for apocalyptic dystopias to unprecedented levels of fear and loathing."

Michael Silverblatt, host of KCRW's Bookworm radio show, has interviewed Gary Indiana on his new novel. The interview will air on May 14. You can listen to the show streaming on the web, or download as a podcast shortly thereafter.
