When I reviewed Pasha Adam’s Keep Santa Monica Clean earlier this week I teased our readers about his upcoming Ten Questions interview. The wait is over! Please put your hands together and help Bookish Devices welcome Pasha Adam! *applause*

Ten Questions vol. 3 #1 Pasha Adam

Bookish Devices: What is your favorite word?
Pasha Adam: “Fuck.” It’s the most versatile word ever. Especially when I’m using it.

BD: What is your least favorite word?
PA: Brexit.

BD: What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
PA: Bad days, California, and sarcasm. Respectively.

BD: What turns you off?
PA: Pleasantries and small talk.

BD: What sound or noise do you love?
PA: Car horns.

BD: What sound or noise do you hate?
PA: Email alerts.

BD: If you could have drinks with any author or literary figure, whom would you invite?
PA: I think Bret Easton Ellis and I could have some fun disagreements over a few tequilas about whether or not TV has superseded film in a post-empire world.

BD: What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
PA: Is retirement a profession? If I didn’t suck at micro-managing my facial expressions I’d say acting.

BD: What profession would you not like to do?
PA: Anything that requires physical exertion. If I’m exerting myself physically it’s going to be on my terms.

BD: What would you choose for your last meal?
PA: Soylent. It would give me more time to hunt Sam Esmail down and get him to tell me Tyrell and Joanna’s backstories in Mr. Robot.

Bonus Question:

BD: If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and could only bring one book, which would you bring?
PA: “How to Survive on a Desert Island” by Jim Pipe.
