John Waters: The Destruction of the Written Word
I have long wanted to sit down with John Waters for a conversation about writing. Over the span of his career he has quite simply written tens of millions of words. In recent years I have come to hold the belief that one of the side-effects of the technological age is a destruction of the modern reader’s attention span. And that this is no small problem for the human race. Today, I was delighted to get his thoughts on this topic and many other subjects during the course of our near two hour conversation. John’s commitment to the written word throughout his life has been stellar and his explorations of different forms of writing during the course of his career is almost unique in Irish literary life.
