Sometimes you write early scenes, and they operate as a sort of scaffolding. They help you while you’re constructing the building, but eventually you’re going to take them down.
— Sam Lipsyte

Sam Lipsyte joins me to discuss Hark.

In an America convulsed by political upheaval, cultural discord, environmental collapse, and spiritual confusion, many folks are searching for peace, salvation, and—perhaps most immediately—just a little damn focus. Enter Hark Morner, an unwitting guru whose technique of “Mental Archery”—a combination of mindfulness, mythology, fake history, yoga, and, well, archery—is set to captivate the masses and raise him to near-messiah status

Hark is Sam Lipsyte’s fourth novel.
