Larry McCaffery interviews Raymond Federman about his friendship with George Tashima. Federman begins by reading a statement about his loss of a homeland when he was a teenager. Federman then begins to talk about his life in the mid-fifties, expounding upon a trip to France in the summer of 1958. Federman then explains how he ran into Tashima, who he had originally met in Tokyo during the Korean War, in New York City after the war, how Tashima explained about the G.I. Bill and how they both ended up students at Columbia University. Federman describes his “Three Musketeers” comradery with Tashima and John Wadleigh. McCaffery and Federman try to determine the timeline of Federman’s friendship with Tashima, aided by letters written by both Federman and Tashima. Later portions of the interview fade in and out.
