Tom Vitale interviews with Richard Flanagan, whose latest novel, Gould's Book of Fish, a Novel in 12 Fish, is a wonderfully extravagant story centered around the fictional 1828 journal of an art forger imprisoned on a penal colony on Van Diemen's Land — now called Tasmania. The book itself is extravagant: A limited number of the novels are printed using six different colors, with four-color plates to illustrate the chapters.
