ABSTRACT
Presents an interview with Ander Monson, author of the book "Other Electricities." According to Monson the idea of playing with form in the nonfictions authored by him is exciting. He had written a poem in the form of an index when he was a graduate student at the University of Alabama. He had averted to narrative when he had started feeling laziness. He stated that form is the content of some of his essays.
