Paris Review Interviews, Vol. III by Philip Gourevitch

Book Description

"I have all the copies of "The Paris Re"view and like the interviews very much. They will make a good book when collected and that will be very good for the "Review.""--Ernest HemingwaySince "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. From Salman Rushdie's daring rhetorical question "why shouldn't literature provoke?" to Joyce Carol Oates's thrilling comments about her own prolific output, "The Paris Review "has elicited revelatory and revealing thoughts from our most accomplished novelists, poets, and playwrights. How did Geroges Simenon manage to write about six books a year, what was it like for Jan Morris to write as both a man and a woman, what influences moved Ralph Ellison to write "Invisible Man"? In the pages of "The Paris Review," writers give more than simple answers, they offer uncommon candor, depth, and wit in interviews that have become the gold standard of the literary Q&A. With an introduction by Margaret Atwood, this volume brings together another rich, varied crop of literary voices, including Martin Amis, Norman Mailer, Raymond Carver, John Cheever, Harold Pinter, and more. "A colossal literary event," as Gary Shteyngart put it, "The Paris Review Interviews, III," is an indespensible teasure of wisdom from the world's literary masters.

We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families by Philip Gourevitch We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families, Paperback (February 2015)

All at once, as it seemed, something we could have only imagined was upon us - and we could still only imagine it. This is what fascinates me most in existence: the peculiar necessity of imagining what is, in fact, real.

Bedrooms of the Fallen by Philip Gourevitch Bedrooms of the Fallen, Hardback (June 2014)

Over the years, the US has been fighting wars so far from the public eye as to risk being forgotten, the struggles and sacrifices of its volunteer soldiers almost ignored. This book features images that depict the bedrooms of forty fallen soldiers - the equivalent of a single platoon - from the US, Canada, and several European nations.
