Read my Lotus-eater interview with author Charles Lambert about his latest book With a Zero at its Heart, published last spring by The Friday Project. Long-time Italy resident, Lambert lives and writes near the sea in Fondi — half way between Rome and Naples.
In the interview, we discuss Lambert’s “confessional prose,” as well as his unusual approach to structure: some consider “Zero” a novel, others a novella, still others a collection of micro-fiction or even a memoir. Call it what you will, it’s distilled prose perfection. Read the interview and buy the book. It’s anything but a zero!
