Joe Bonomo Interview with Jim Linderman "Conversations..."

I was flattered to have been asked by author Joe Bonomo to answer a few questions on his site No Such Thing As Was. The Complete interview is HERE.

“Every passion borders on the chaotic,” writes Walter Benjamin in “Unpacking My Library,” “but the collector’s passion borders on the chaos of memories.” This observation informs the work of collector, archivist, and Americana yay-sayer Jim Linderman. At his wide-ranging, comprehensive, and lively blogs Vintage Sleaze (“The true and untold story of smut in America”), Old Time Religion (“Vernacular religious detritus”), and Dull Tool Dim Bulb (“Surface, wear, form and authenticity in art, antiques and photography”) Linderman acknowledges the obscure at the same time that he elevates it.” Continues HERE.

Joe Bonomo's books include Conversations With Greil Marcus (Literary Conversations Series, forthcoming), AC/DC’s Highway to Hell (33 1/3 Series), Jerry Lee Lewis: Lost and Found, Installations (National Poetry Series), and Sweat: The Story of The Fleshtones, America’s Garage Band. I've published numerous personal essays and prose poems.
