The Village Voice interviews Guy Maddin

On the eve of the publication of My Winnipeg, the book companion to his latest critically-lauded film, Guy Maddin talks to the Village Voice's Zach Baron about what readers can expect to find between the covers:

'Like the film, Maddin confesses, when reached on the phone in Toronto, where he now also owns an apartment, the book is "a mixture of myths I wish had been around for decades or centuries, and facts I never ought to have blurted out." The text is dense with the latter: Maddin's PIN codes, dream diaries, a letter from a furious ex-girlfriend. New legends include the E Gang, "an elusive group of nocturnal criminals whose sole crime . . . was stealing the letter E from every piece of signage in the city."'


Catch Guy Maddin at book signings in New York at the IFC Center (April 19) and Barnes and Noble (April 20).
