Amy Hempel Interview

A Long Time Coming
Rob Hart
Amy Hempel

Amy Hempel is a tough interview.

I don't mean that to say she's rude or doesn't answer questions, it's just that this interview started more than two years ago.

The first time I approached her for this was Aug. 10, 2006, at a reading in the park at Union Square, where she joined other writers to read excerpts from Unleashed: Poems by Writers' Dogs.

By the end of the reading the skies opened. The kind of rain that changes the direction of rivers. She ducked under a tent and stayed to chat with friends and fans. When the crowd cleared, I made my pitch.

CHOKE Movie: Soundtrack Listing Announced!

News On The Official Soundtrack for 'Choke'Let me start by saying that Radiohead is NOT doing the score for 'Choke'. Nor are they contributing a previously unreleased song for the soundtrack. Yes, that would be cool as all hell. But it's unfortunately not true. I have that from my contacts at Fox Searchlight, so you can believe it.
