Littsburgh Interview with Salvatore Pane

March 10, 2024

Thanks to Avery Bauer and Littsburgh for interviewing former Pittsburgher Salvatore Pane about his collection, The Neorealist in Winter. Of his collection, Sal says:

I hope that readers can revel in something that isn’t pure escapism. I want to linger in the difficult moments, because I feel like so much of art and media in general is geared toward making us forget our problems so we can be sold something. Obviously, I’m selling you something too—a book—but I hope Neorealist can be frank about depression and generational trauma and not saccharine for the sake of a bottom line.
