Exclusive Interview: The City And The Cygnets Author Michael Bishop


In 1970, writer Michael Bishop wrote “If A Flower Could Eclipse,” the first in what would become a series of short stories and a novel, A Little Knowledge, set in the Urban Nucleus Of Atlanta. Now, all of these tales have been collected in the new anthology The City And The Cygnets (paperback, Kindle). In the following email interview, Bishop explains what this series of stories is about, what inspired it, and whether he thinks this would be a good place to start exploring his impressive oeuvre.
