#TPQ5: D.T. ROBBINS

Donald Ray Pollock

I’m all about voice, and this book is thick with it. Couple that with the hopelessness in his seedy characters and I’m hooked — Knockemstiff may be my favorite book ever.

Kelly Link

Weird shit is my jam, and she’s the best at it. Period.

Brian Evenson

I’ve learned so much about writing just by reading his stuff. I mean, down to sentence structure, he’s a master.

Haruki Murakami

Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World was my introduction to Murakami, my favorite of his. His storytelling is slick, strange, and sexy.

Willy Vlautin

I love old country music, grew up on it — the heartache and loneliness of it all. Anything Vlautin writes speaks to that piece of me. No one can break my heart like he can.


D.T. Robbins is a writer with roots in Southeastern Louisiana and Southern California. His writing has appeared or is forthcoming in Hobart, Bending Genres, Ghost City Review, Trampset, X-R-A-Y Lit, Versification, and others. He’s founding editor of Rejection Letters.
