Product description

Since The Paris Review was founded in 1953, it has given us invaluable conversations with the greatest writers of our age, vivid self-portraits that are themselves works of finely-crafted literature. The magazine has spoken with most of the world's leading novelists, poets and playwrights, and the interviews themselves have come to be recognised as classic words of literature in their own right. The series as a whole is indispensable for all writers and readers. This new volume in the series builds on the success and acclaim of the first two editions. The interviews: Ralph Ellison (1955); Georges Simenon (1955); Isak Dineson (1956); Evelyn Waugh (1963); William Carlos Williams (1964); Harold Pinter (1966); John Cheever (1976); Joyce Carol Oates (1978); Jean Rhys (1979); Raymond Carver (1983); Chinua Achebe (1994); Ted Hughes (1995); Jan Morris (1997); Martin Amis (1998); Salman Rushdie (2005); and Norman Mailer (2007).

Review quote

"* 'Indispensable reading for anybody interested in how writers work and why writing continues to work.' - Daily Telegraph * 'If you want to get acquainted with your favourite writer, you could go to a reading or a book-signing. But to really know them, you should read a Paris Review interview.' - The Times * 'I have been fascinated by the Paris Review interviews for as long as I can remember. Taken together they form perhaps the finest available inquiry into the 'how' of literature, in many ways a more interesting question than 'why'.' - Salman Rushdie * 'For writing nerds, this is nirvana.' - Colin Waters, Sunday Herald"
