“Writer—Dan Chaon”  directed by Ted Sikora.   Disturbing revelations throughout!  

Nice video of Dan talking about his correspondence with Ray Bradbury, the midwest landscape, the pain of throwing away writing, and using autobiography in fiction.

He really pays forward the generosity he received from Bradbury — I used to live in his neighborhood in Cleveland and he was way nicer to me than I deserved, having coffee with me a few times and inviting me to events at Oberlin. It really meant a lot.

Oh, and he’s a fucking awesome writer. If you like novels, get Await Your Reply, if you like short stories, get his new book, Stay Awake.
