From Swamplands To Vampires, Karen Russell Sees Things Through Teenage Boy's Eyes
"I remember desperately wanting to write a story [for the latest collection] that was not from the point of view of an adolescent boy, because it had felt like that was exclusively what I had been doing. ...

situation. That just seems to be where I live, narratively."
