The Writer’s Block is an ongoing video series of interviews with visiting writers at City of Asylum/Pittsburgh. In these Q&A’s, conducted on Sampsonia Way, writers sit down with us to discuss literature, their craft, and career. View all previous interviews here.

In February 2013 Eduardo Halfon visited City of Asylum/Pittsburgh to read from his newly translated novel, The Polish Boxer. This is the first of Halfon’s works to be published in English. Prior to his reading, Halfon met with Sampsonia Way to talk about his writing style, translation, and why stealing his books is a compliment.
