"I have a body of work that's based on work," says Mike Sager.
Hey, today I bring you the incomparable Mike Sager, @therealsager on Twitter. He of The Sager Group. He of the National Magazine Award. He of he talks you listen.
In Episode 95 of the creative nonfiction podcast he talks about his humble start in journalism, suspending disbelief, the power of creating something, and journalism as sport.
His collections of journalism include: The Lonely Hedonist, which includes all new material, Wounded Warriors, The Someone You’re Not, Stoned Again, The Devil and John Holmes, and Revenge of the Donut Boys, which features the iconic profile of Rosanne Barr, a feature that feels timely with the reboot of the show.
All of these books you can find at thesagergroup.net where you can buy them and learn a thing or two.
His collections are an education. You wanna be good? You wanna be great? You gotta read Mike’s work, after you listen to this episode of course.
I love to hear about the process of other writers and how they manage life as a writer, so I'm a fan.
