Exclusive Interview: L.A. Man Writer Joe Donnelly

And now for something completely nepotistic. I first met Joe Donnelly when he came to work at Raygun Publishing, the Santa Monica-based magazine company where I worked in the mid- to late-’90s. In the years since, Joe has worked at the L.A. Weekly and co-edited the literary magazine Slake, among other things, while I sat on my couch, playing video games. Which is why he now has a collection of his journalist efforts, L.A. Man: Profiles From A Big City And A Small World (paperback, Kindle), while I have a little website where I do email interviews with people I used to work with.
