Description - The Paris Review Interviews: Vol. 1 by Philip Gourevitch

How do great writers do it? From James M. Cain's hard-nosed observation that 'writing a novel is like working on foreign policy. There are problems to be solved. It's not all inspirational,' to Joan Didion's account of how she composes a book - 'I constantly retype my own sentences. Every day I go back to page one and just retype what I have. It gets me into a rhythm' - The Paris Review has elicited some of the most revelatory and revealing thoughts from the literary masters of our age. For more than half a century, the magazine has spoken with most of our leading novelists, poets, and playwrights, and the interviews themselves have come to be recognized as classic works of literature.Now, Paris Review editor Philip Gourevitch introduces an entirely original selection of sixteen of the most celebrated interviews. Often startling, always engaging, these encounters contain an immense scope of intelligence, personality, experience, and wit from the likes of Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote and Billy Wilder.
