Mr. Segundo has lured author Dana Spiotta (Eat The Document) into his cave to discuss (and we quote):

Katherine Ann Power as inspiration, the ambiguities of terrorism, comparisons and similarities between Eat the Document and Lightning Field, witty political activists, the Billboard Liberation Front, cinematic influences, Don DeLillo, plotting, reader expectations, on stopping just short of September 11th, justifying pop cultural references, food as a Balzacian character indicator, the Beach Boys, literary influences, dialogue, how people talk in restaurants, the rise in contemporary novels dealing with 1960s & 1970s activism, innocence, and unanswered questions for the reader.

Now, far be it for us to give away a surprise ending, but since the Segundo people already did, the podcast comes with a chance to win a really fine book. And you do like books, don’t you?
