The Washington Post has an excellent, fairly lengthy profile piece of M.T. "Tobin" Anderson, talking about the Octavian books but also his others:
"It's insulting to believe that teens should have a different kind of book than an adult should," says the author of "Feed" and, most recently, "The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation." Teens like challenges, he says. They know the world is complicated, and "they can tell when a book is simplifying life."

Thanks for pointing us to this one. The pull quote is fabulous–now I’m off to read the whole piece.
Thank you for this link—I’d not seen the story and I’ve been fascinated by MT Anderson’s decisions as a writer.
Thanks, too, for your great blog (which I’ve discovered by way of Fuse).
