Interview with a Baker

‘Doughboy Lovers and the Appetites of Desire’ in the current issue of Pulp Literature is a story steeped in myth and magical realism with cautions embedded for modern lovers.  Here’s another glimpse into the thoughts of author Karlo Yeager’s protagonist.

  1. What is your greatest fear? Loneliness has its own weight and momentum which grows and accelerates with time.
  2. What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?  What, and have people think I’m weak?
  3. When and where were you happiest?  Adrift in childhood memories of my grandma’s kitchen, immersed in the sweet smell of baking bread.
  4. What is your most treasured possession?  The old family recipe for doughboys.
  5. What is your greatest regret?  Love, like day-old bread, grows stale.Karlo Yeager

When not swinging a pick in the Word Mines, Karlo Yeager writes short fiction, reads, and offers a portion of his soul to animate the Baltimore Science Fiction Society’s tame Dalek.
