The Oxford American interviewed author Kevin Wilson.

"You know, I had very simple origins. I wrote because I really loved reading. If you love something enough you eventually want to be a part of it. As a kid I didn't trust human beings at all; they seemed so scary to me. Books were this kind of safe way for me to understand empathy—what it means to care about somebody else, to try to understand how another person might think. Writing became that for me. "

All Songs Considered interviewed the members of Sleater-Kinney about the band's first new album in 1o years.
