In an interview with The New York TimesLydia Davis, the U.S. author who contributed fiction to Issue 1 of Interlitq, states:

“As for disappointing, I remember when my younger son was reading the Harry Potter books, I thought it would be fun to read them along with him, since I knew that adults were enjoying them too. But when I tried the first one, I found the writing flat and shallow, and the characters less than interesting, so there went that idea.”
