Patrick Somerville has published a collection of short stories called Trouble and a novel The Cradle. I like his work. On September 25th he made an appearance at Milwaukee’s Boswell Books and to promote the event myself and Stephanie Lecci interviewed him on Lake Effect. Was fun.

This was the first of what will be a recurring series with Lake Effect, wherein we’ll be covering literature and poetry from these parts that may not be receiving a whole lot of attention. Next up we interview Marc Kelly Smith, creator of the Poetry Slam.
