Alex Ross wins MacArthur "genius" grant

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Alex (The Rest Is Noise) Ross has been awarded a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, commonly known as a "genius" grant (h/t: Jason Gross of PopMatters). Fishbowl NY has a brief Q&A with Ross, where he says:

When I get around to writing my next big book, this award will allow me to take some time off here and there, travel to do research, and otherwise explore the subject in depth. I wrote my last book in coffeeshops between assignments, in the middle of the night when other work was done, and whenever else I could squeeze in the time. The MacArthur will give my a lot more breathing room. I would also like to use the award to build up my website and pursue related multimedia projects. And I'm hoping to launch some home improvements, so I no longer have hundreds of books and CDs piled on the floor or in closets. Basically, I am hoping for less chaos and more time to think.

Ross is planning to begin that new book in the Spring...I can't wait!
