YOU CAN CATCH SADNESS AND DEATH LIKE A FEVER: An Interview with Scott McClanahan
“I was a religious little boy and thought Guns N’ Roses were nothing but sinners and going to hell.”

Brian Alan Ellis

Scott McClanahan is an award-winning author from West Virginia best known for writing several autobiographical stories and novels, the most recent of which (The Sarah Book, out this month from Tyrant Books; Talking Book is doing the audio version) chronicles the unraveling of his previous marriage in devastatingly kinetic albeit humorous fashion. McClanahan also makes documentary films. He even recorded a folk/country single for Fat Possum Records, and has collaborated with artist Ricardo Cavolo on a graphic novel about Daniel Johnston, a singer/songwriter/artist struggling with mental illness. The dude also digs soap operas and has had guns pulled on him.
