INTERVIEW: GARY LUTZ


At what point in writing a narrative do you lock in and decide which point of view will work best for it?

 

I have never given any thought to point of view.  If I had to classify the point of view in my fiction, I would call it the zeroth-person point of view.  If my stories work in any way, it is only because the language has been somehow urged to speak.

 

Have you ever finished (or even published) a story in one point of view and then realized later it really should have been told from another?

 

No.

 

What's the one short story that best exemplifies what a short story could be instead of what it should be?

 

“It Spoke of Exactly the Things," by Barry Hannah.

 

 

GARY LUTZ is the author of Stories in the Worst Way, I Looked Alive, Partial List of People to Bleach, and Divorcer.
