Walter Kirn interview

A while back I talked with Walter Kirn. The ostensible topic was his new book “Lost in the Meritocracy” and its translation from a short essay in the Atlantic magazine to a book, but we went off on different tangents touching on his novels, education, the upcoming film version of his book “Up in the Air” and other topics. Kirn is in some ways the kind of writer I aspire to be, a successful novelist and journalist who lives in Montana. It was a great conversation.
