Message Bill Wetzel

Who are your five favorite short story writers?

  Kafka, Diaz, Alexie, Salinger, Baldwin, Lahiri, Carver, O'Connor, Hemingway, Wright. & lately Holly Goddard Jones. She's a badass. Sorry, that's more than five. As you can see, I like to break rules.

What are five short stories that you would recommend everybody should read?

  "Hills Like White Elephants" (Hemingway), "Sonny's Blues" (Baldwin), "Going Ashore," (Lahiri) "From the Hilltop" (Jensen), "Aurora" (Diaz). See, this time I didn't break the rules.

If you could fight any character in a short story who would that be?

Erika Wurth didn't answer this question at first, then she replied back that she would fight me (Bill Wetzel) then later, thankfully, changed her mind and said " Put that I'd fight any of Eddie Chuculate's characters."
