Small Art: Meet Brad Liening

November 27, 2012

Brad Liening and I used to scoop deli salads next to one another at the Birchwood Cafe. But, that’s not his claim to fame. He’s a graduate of the University of Michigan and the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and has written 4 chapbooks (including, Are You There, God? It’s Me, Whitney Houston), and a book–Ghosts and Doppelgangers– published by Lowbrow Press in 2010. He writes about Nicholas Cage and celebrity in a way that makes my heart sing. So, come and listen to him read! 
{Small Art is happening in St. Paul on November 30.}

What’s inspiring/exciting you these days? Music and Michigan football.
What were you thinking about when you wrote what you’re sharing on Friday? The USA’s weird relationship to celebrity.
What’s something that folks might not know about you? I love trash/cult cinema.
What do you do when you’re not writing? I pamper my cats, mostly.
