Before turning thirty-five, South African literary journalist Jonny Steinberg already enjoyed the singular distinction of being the only South African author ever to have twice won his nation's highest prize for literary nonfiction, the Sunday Times Alan Paton Award. Steinberg's books have examined racial violence on South African farms, gang Ufe in prisons, and South African policing. Steinberg sat down recendy with River Teeth coeditor Daniel W Lehman at the Washington Square Hotel in New York City to discuss his literary nonfiction as well as the ethical and artistic implications it raises for authors and characters.
