May 21, 2010Newly 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). Click here to listen in either m3u format, or with RealPlayer.
