The Nervous Breakdown Interview: Eleni Sikelianos

I interviewed poet Eleni Sikelianos about her latest hybrid memoir, You Animal Machine (The Golden Greek), on The Nervous Breakdown - we talked about Kristeva and Ginsberg and visual essays, about breaking nonfiction rules and creating new ones.

A picture can over-fix reality, we can get stuck in an image’s interpretation of the past; language is a way to mobilize it.
