Not entirely essay, not entirely fiction—an interview is unnatural. Real talk, the sort of conversation you share breezily and without thought, isn’t what you see or read in an interview. What you see or read retells only an impartial story of what actually happened. What does an interview do other than burden us with another standard of eloquence? (…) You just don’t expect to see reality in an interview; though, ostensibly, what you’re reading or seeing is true. The interview comes to life only through elimination.
