"One Potato" by Tyler McMahon.

When someone sets out to pen their first novel, it’s probably understood it will be a lengthy process of writing, edits, rejections and then more edits before it’s published. But what about the second or third book? Does it get any easier?

Hawaiʻi Pacific University professor and author Tyler McMahon released his fourth novel "One Potato" earlier this year. McMahon sat down with The Conversation to talk about the book, and what the process is like the fourth time around.

This interview aired on The Conversation on June 21, 2022. The Conversation airs weekdays at 11 a.m. on HPR-1.

Russell Subiono is the executive producer of The Conversation and host of HPR's This Is Our Hawaiʻi podcast. Born in Honolulu and raised on Hawaiʻi Island, he’s spent the last decade working in local film, television and radio. Contact him at talkback@hawaiipublicradio.org.
