“In Impossible Conversations Carla Wilson performs with great aplomb the impossibly perilous feat of the imagined interview. She has selected some of the most difficult interview subjects possible (artists!), and imagines how meetings between an interviewer who has done her research and really wants to engage these oddballs in conversation might play out. The results are delightful, perhaps even more for the agonies the interviewer has to endure than for the eccentricities of the artists themselves. Pity the poor interviewer, especially since the voices in this book are so well heard that one can actually imagine these troublesome characters to be in the room, making life for the interviewer uncomfortably difficult. What a sublime achievement!” —Eckhard Gerdes
“By way of Wilson’s splendid imagination, curious encounters guaranteed.” —Edith Doove

On the 4th of July, Black Scat Books celebrated three years of publishing. In that short span of time we’ve released nearly 100 titles, which may make us seem bigger than we are. We’re still a small, independent press that barely scrapes by each month. Word of mouth is very important to us as that’s how most of our readers discover us, i.e., a friend whispers in their ear. We invite you to pass the good word along. And if you aren’t following this blog, please enter your email address on this page and subscribe— that way you’ll always know what’s waiting in the wings.
Remember, good lit happens here.
