Lars Iyer

In this month’s episode we speak to Lars Iyer, weaver of fiction in blog-form, novelist and erstwhile philosopher.

Among many other things we talked to Lars about turning blogs into novels (as he did with his first three novels ‘Spurious’, ‘Dogma’ and ‘Exodus’), his path to being a serial producer of trilogies and making the most of your spouse as your first reader and editor.

Post-interview, Lars confirmed for us that ‘Nietzsche in the Burbs’ will be coming out next year on Melville House.

You can follow Lars on Twitter: @UtterlySpurious – he also wrote an interesting piece for the White Review on the health of the contemporary novel in 2011, which can be read here.
