We may not know Atticus’s face, but Foy himself got to see the anonymous poet and hear his stories—after a slight technical mishap that brings Foy to his own backyard. The anonymous New York Times bestselling author of Love Her Wild, The Dark Between Stars, and The Truth About Magic pioneered wearing a mask—he’s never shown his face in public. With Foy, he talks about the pitfalls of fame and what it’s like to wear a mask on a book tour. Dubbed ‘the worlds’ most tattooable poet,’ Atticus talks about the Beats and french fries from Chateau Marmont. Foy, for his part, gets a new favorite food, this time from China, and the two talk about poetic inspiration and the resurgence of interest in the written word. You too can drink with Atticus—his wine brand, the Lost Poet, is available on Winc.com
