Andrew (Drew) Hubner in conversation with Bernard Meisler.
Andrew (Drew) Hubner, is the author of East of Bowery, We Pierce and American By Blood, and an educator at Hostos Community College in the Bronx. We spoke about his new novel, his family’s history of violence and the military, how he got into the NY poetry scene at ABC No Rio, his personal struggles that led to homelessness and institutionalization, and how he overcame them. We also spoke about his writing process, how he’s influenced by the classics, and likes to use “picture words.”
At around the 43-minute mark, Drew reads a powerful excerpt from his new novel.
