Robert Goolrick took a break from packing boxes to talk to Kirkus Reviews, in the process of moving from White Stone, Virginia—population 352—to the even smaller Weems, Virginia. It’s a lifetime and a world away from Manhattan, where for 35 years Goolrick lived a life of excess and hedonism—his own description. http://ow.ly/RvClq
Kirkus Reviews talks to Robert Goolrick about his new novel The Fall of Princes.
