Paris Review Interviews by Philip Gourevitch
Book DescriptionSince "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 William Faulkner's determination that a great novel takes "ninety-nine percent talent . . . ninety-nine percent discipline . . . ninety-nine percent work," to Gabriel Garcia Marquez's observation that "in the first paragraph, you solve most of the problems with your book," "The Paris Review "has elicited revelatory and revealing thoughts from our most accomplished novelists, poets, and playwrights. With an introduction by Orhan Pamuk, this volume brings together another rich, varied crop of literary voices, including Toni Morrison, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Graham Greene, James Baldwin, Stephen King, Philip Larkin, Eudora Welty, and more. "A colossal literary event," as Gary Shteyngart put it, "The Paris Review Interviews, II, "is an indispensable treasury of wisdom from the world's literary masters."
