Interview with Justin Torres, author of We the Animals


As you may remember from my previous post, I had a chance to sit down with Justin Torres on Monday to discuss his debut work, WE THE ANIMALS, with him and even though it was an epic 2.5 hour-long trek to Brooklyn, I had a wonderful time and was honored to be there.

Here is some of the coverage from the event below and a special thanks to everyone who came out!

If you haven't read this book yet, you definitely need to pick it up. It's definitely a book of the year and reminds me of a fusion between Down These Mean Streets by Piri Thomas, Blu's Hanging by Lois-Ann Yamanaka , Push: A Novel by Sapphire, and The Road by Cormac McCarthy; yes, it's that caliber.
