Padgett Powell, The Interrogative Mood: A Novel?

I loved this book, and ended up reading much of the ending to my wife while she was feeding our son late at night. Every sentence in the book is a question.1 You can hear Powell reading it here and watch him reading it here. It will go next to Joe Brainard’s I Remember on my shelf of favorites.

Filed under: my reading year 2012


  1. I wonder if the writer of this hilarious Guy Fieri review has read it as well?

Padgett Powell’s rules on “What Writing Should Do,” printed in the back of The Interrogative Mood.

I had lost my syllabus from his class, but once this book was published I had the most important part of it again.

I’m reading The Interrogative Mood right now and loving it.
