In April 2013, Cuban writer Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo visited Pittsburgh as a part of his U.S. trip. He read at a City of Asylum/Pittsburgh event held at Bar Marco in the Strip District. Before the reading, Lazo sat down with Sampsonia Way to talk about how he views himself as a writer, his least favorite interview questions, and why he can’t stop writing.
