INTERVIEW: GARY LUTZ
At what point in writing a narrative do you lock in and decide which point of view will work best for it?
I have never given any thought to point of view. If I had to classify the point of view in my fiction, I would call it the zeroth-person point of view. If my stories work in any way, it is only because the language has been somehow urged to speak.
Have you ever finished (or even published) a story in one point of view and then realized later it really should have been told from another?
What's the one short story that best exemplifies what a short story could be instead of what it should be?
