In anticipation of my new book, Whitman Illuminated: Song of Myself (Tin House), the folks at Weird NJ have been kind enough to open their ancient vaults to release this rather comprehensive interview from July 2008. It has never been published until now. Quite a time capsule, at least for me. My sincere thanks to Joanne Austin, Ryan Doan, and everyone at Weird NJ.
