Overview

For more than fifty years, The Paris Review has brought us revelatory and revealing interviews with the literary lights of our age.

This critically acclaimed series continues with another eclectic lineup, including Philip Roth, Ezra Pound, Haruki Murakami, Marilynne Robinson, Stephen Sondheim, E. B. White, Maya Angelou, William Styron and more. In each of these remarkable extended conversations, the authors touch every corner of the writing life, sharing their ambitions, obsessions, inspirations, disappointments, and the most idiosyncratic details of their writing habits.

The collected interviews of The Paris Reviews are, as Gary Shteyngart put it, "a colossal literary event."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The Paris Review books should be given out at dinner parties, readings, riots, weddings, galas -- shindigs of every shape. And they're perfect for the classroom too, from high schools all the way to MFA programs. In fact, I run a whole semester-long creative writing class based on the interviews. How else would I get the world's greatest living writers, living and dead, to come into the classroom with their words of wisdom, folly and fury? These books are wonderful, provocative, indispensible.” —Colum McCann, novelist and Hunter College professor

“A small treasure. The interviews are literary landmarks, and the gossip, humor, ideas, and practical advice dispensed are bracing.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“The most remarkable and extensive interviewing project we possess.” —The New York Times

“Utterly absorbing . . . They are all fascinating and often quite funny.” —The Boston Globe

“Groundbreaking, eclectic, indispensable Q&As.” —Elle
