Not that I’ll ever tire of talking to novelists, but it was a nice change-up for this episode to have a chat with Alissa Wilkinson–critic and lover of pop culture; and editor and writer of film reviews, Mad Men recaps, and essays about art and art-making. What Alissa may not know is how much I have long admired her work and her work ethic, and how she’s able to manage so many different things with such skill. We talked about how she got started writing “for the Internet,” how running interacts with her writing life, what we love about good criticism, and, of course, Kieslowski and Melrose Place.
