Hot Type: Michael Turner gets hardcore… sorta

The Story

In one of Hot Type's more intimate interviews, Canadian writer Michael Turner strips off and jumps into bed to discuss his new book, The Pornographer''s Poem, a coming-of-age tale set in 1970s Vancouver. In this interview, the Hard Core Logo author argues that pornography deserves more credit as a valid art form - all the while enduring a deadpan interrogation from host Evan Solomon.
