THE OA: You're frequently referred to as a Southern writer. How do you feel about that classification?
SM: Yeah, I'm usually lumped in with those folks. I don't even consider myself Southern. West Virginia is a mid-Atlantic state. Usually when they review my work, they're like, "It’s like having someone sit next to you at your local bar telling you something." I hate bars! I'm a Christian. I get drunk at home! Bars are just old dudes smelling like urine and women with big asses and bad teeth.
Alongside of that I get lumped in with Larry Brown, Barry Hannah, Harry Crews. I mean, I think those writers are completely different, and I love them. Philip Roth has influenced me just as much, but no one is trying to lump me in with Philip Roth.
