The Biggest Little Birdy Told Me: Author Pam Jones talks magical realism, writing, and the 60s

Also originally posted on the Bound and Gagged Banned Books Blog, this interview I conducted with author and Hampshire alum Pam Jones gets into publishing, self-publishing, being a writing major, and the struggles of marketing a niche genre like magical realism or the in-between length that is the novella.

Bound and Gagged

Hello, readers! Once again, I bring you a post that isn’t about banned books. However, I have a real treat in store today: an interview with author Pam Jones! Her first book, The Biggest Little Bird, was published by Black Hill Press and released in December 2013. You can read my review of it here.

The magical realism novella is hard to describe and fascinating to discuss, so without further ado, I bring you a writer’s thoughts on the amusement park’s place in literature, reinvented histories, writing majors, the murky underbelly of a bygone era, and the rollercoaster ride that is getting a book published.
