Editorial Reviews

Review

"Highly entertaining." —Kirkus Reviews

"'Always Apprentices,' a collection of 22 conversations between writers, reminds us how much the [Believer] magazine has contributed to the literary conversation." —Chicago Tribune

"Intimate, revealing and edifying interviews.” —Pop Matters

"From the troubled state of literature and today’s narrowly commercial publishing world to the exasperation of working with Hollywood, the interviews both inspire and charm with their blend of urgency and irony."—Publishers Weekly

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I am always on the hunt for interviews involving writers. I have long been a fan of The Paris Review and I only discovered the Believer Mag recently. I bought this book because it had interviews with writers I admire: Don Delillo, Bret Easton Ellis, Joan Didion, Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I recommend it for a person who enjoys an excellent and fresh interview. The questions feature great depth and the answers of the writers were very stimulating.
If you haven't checked out the Believer Mag, definitely do. If you want a place to start, get this book and it will give you a wonderful preview of the quality of this magazine.
Five stars!!!
