From 2001--2011 he taught seminars on The Art of the Interview, The Literature of Journalism, Articles to Film, and Autobiography & the Memoir at UCLA. In 2012 he appeared as himself in Al Pacino's film Wilde Salome and will also appear in Shane Salerno's film about J.D. Salinger.

Format: Paperback
With this book Lawrence Grobel has compiled some of his best work. Each interview is insightful, well researched, and above all entertaining. He is never afraid to ask the difficult or controversial questions and his manner seems to elicit honest and revealing answers. For anyone interested in the men and women behind some the 20th century's most prestigious writers, this book is a must.

Format: Paperback
This book pretty much delivers what the cover describes. A nice look inside the minds of some of the big names in mid to latter 20th century fiction authors: Mailer, Oates, and Bradbury were some of my personal favorites. If you like reading and would like to learn more about the characters that do the work behind some of your favorite creations, you can probably find them here.
