Conquistador Interview and Dates
<i>Conquistador</i> Interview and Dates September 19, 2013

"This turned out to be much more of life imitating art than the other way around. That's Joshua Isard talking up about his debut novel Conquistador of the Useless.
After all, it's not every day that a writer relocates from the urban landscape to a suburban house just like the one he describes his main character as living in. But that's just what happened--after Isard wrote about it in Conquistador. For more insight into Isard (who runs the low-residency Creative Writing MFA program at Arcadia University) and his "sort of alter-ego" Nathan Wavelsky read the Montgomery News interview here.
