Paris Review Interviews by Philip Gourevitch

Book Description

From William Faulkner's famous reply, 'The writer's only responsibility is to his art,' to James Salter's confession 'What is the ultimate impulse to write? Because all this is going to vanish', the Paris Review has elicited many of the most arresting, illuminating, and revealing discussions of life and craft from the greatest writers of our age. Under its original editor, George Plimpton, the Paris Review is credited with inventing the modern literary interview, and more than half a century later the magazine remains the master of the form. By turns intimate, instructive, gossipy, curmudgeonly, elegant, hilarious, cunning, and consoling, the Paris Review interviews have come to be celebrated as classic literary works in their own right. Now, from the treasure trove of the archives, Paris Review editor Philip Gourevitch has selected twenty of the most essential interviews for the first of a four volume set. The authors are: Dorothy Parker, Truman Capote, Ernest Hemingway, T. S. Eliot, Saul Bellow, Jorge Luis Borges, Kurt Vonnegut, James M. Cain, Rebecca West, Elizabeth Bishop, Robert Stone, Robert Gottlieb, Richard Price, Billy Wilder, Jack Gilbert and Joan Didion.

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.

Ballad of Abu Ghraib by Philip Gourevitch Ballad of Abu Ghraib, Paperback / softback (April 2009)

Two of the country's top moral and political observers have produced the first full reckoning of what actually happened at Abu Ghraib prison, based on hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews with the Americans involved.

Paris Review Interviews, Vol. III by Philip Gourevitch Paris Review Interviews, Vol. III, Paperback / softback (October 2008)

This critically acclaimed series continues with another eclectic lineup, including Raymond Carver, Norman Mailer, and Joyce Carol Oates. "The interviews are literary landmarks, and the gossip, humor, ideas, and practical advice dispensed are bracing."--"San Francisco Chronicle."
