“I just like writing...the subject isn’t the point—it’s how you write, and it’s what you find to say about it, what you can glean from it, what you can dissect from it. That’s the pleasure in writing.” A. A. Gill, whose new memoir Pour Me a Life (Blue Rider Press, 2016), is featured in “Nine More New Memoirs” in the September/October issue of Poets & Writers Magazine, talks about starting out as an artist, and his work as a journalist, columnist, and novelist.
