Ladies and gentlemen, may I present Jonathan Ames, all a-podcast-y. In the first half of our conversation, Jonathan answers questions about his novel Wake Up, Sir!, his new book of essays I Love You More Than You Know and then tells a funny story about his non-familial relationship with George Plimpton. He also plays some music. A little Smiths. A little Beatles. Want to know where I got the Beatles? There's more about that here. The second half of the interview with Jonathan Ames will appear here streamophonically and I think as a podcast. I think tomorrow. Possibly the tomorrow after that.
