Newly posted on ArtonAir.org, here’s Phong Bui’s 2009 interview with Seven Stories Press publisher Dan Simon, as described thus:
Phong Bui speaks with Dan Simon, the publisher of Seven Stories Press and a Rail managing and advisory board member. Simon discusses, through wanton analogies wild and exacting, the multiple trapeze acts that the publisher must perform, the need for a greater place for contemporary works in translation, the background behind Kurt Vonnegut’s remarkable meditative text A Man without a Country and other works from the tremendous output of Simon’s publishing house. Acts of political and literary bravery have defined Simon’s career, as is made plainly evident here (67 minutes).
