Combine the human desire to know (Aristotle) with the joy found in good conversation (Montaigne) and a wish to share the results, and you have a good idea of why I host and produce The Biblio File.

Artist/Poet Sherwin Tjia reads some of his hilarious pseudo-Haikus and one sentence stories. Plus we talk about first class rail travel, drinking, caring about things and people, drawing and making things, transgression, cross-dressing, suicidal behavior, Richard Russo and Haruki Murakami's The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and Sherwin's book of pseudo-Haikus The World is a Heartbreaker (Coach House Books, 2005).

I should warn you that much of our conversation centers around the topic of sex. It's not offensive, but it does tend to dominate. So, be forewarned. 

Please note that this conversation was taped some years ago and that the website that Sherwin cites at the end is no longer functional.
