P. W. Kidscast is not the name of the patriarch in a sprawling multi-generational TV mini-series, but rather Publishers Weekly’s online interview series where you can currently listen to the author of What We Found in the Sofa and How It Saved the World say “um” a lot. He also accuses the interviewer of being a nerd. Fortunately, there is no accompanying video - we were sitting in bean-bag chairs in a vacant lot near the Fulton Fish Market - so you can get your ironing done while you listen.
Pictured here on the day he sold What We Found in the Sofa. His mood is cautiously optimistic.
