“I’m not sure about the future of Amazon [Publishing] in the literary world at large. I do think that for my book it’s been really interesting working with them and being able to answer those questions [about audience] and also to challenge myself more about how do I see this book existing in the world and what kind of spaces do I want it to enter and what kind of people do I want it to encounter. I think that working with Amazon has been interesting in that way, because they do have a very broad reach, and a very established way of doing things that for me has given a lot of structure to thinking about the book being out in the world.”
