Jay McInerney chats with the New York Times and weighs in on the great  novel vs. short story debate.  He also talks about  New York City in depth, the old New York City, that is.  He’s charming while he does it.  Watch the interview here.  No really, do it.  When you’re done, read the review of his new collection, How It Ended: New and Collected Stories, here.

Newspapers may be dead, dying, etc., but I’m consistently impressed by the variety of media the New York Times exploits on it’s website.  So satisfying.  So modern.
