Paolo and I have been buds for over a decade now, since his very first science fiction convention ever. We timed this interview to coincide with the release of The Water Knife, his latest novel, which takes place in a mega-drought-stricken American southwest (which is where he and I both live, incidentally.)
For those who are most interested in hearing the history of Paolo’s writing career to date, that starts at 21:50. 46:50 is where we discuss the specifics of how Windup Girl was published.
At the very end, my connection suddenly died, so sorry for the abrupt cut-off… Once you’ve had a chance to listen, go check out his latest book!
