By Shalom Freedman HALL OF FAME on June 17, 2008
Format: DVD
This tribute is a rebroadcast of an interview done with William Maxwell in 1995. Maxwell was for forty years a senior editor at 'The New Yorker' where he edited among others, Nabokov, Updike, Salinger, I.B. Singer, Eudora Welty. Maxwell was also a distinguished short- story writer and novelist. Charlie Rose asks him about his early years, the pivotal event of his life being the death of his mother at the age of ten. Maxwell said that when this happened 'The shine ' went out of life for a long time. In the course of the interview Charlie Rose very movingly reads the passage in one of Maxwell's books describing this. Maxwell whose reactions are extraordinary slow and in accordance with his advanced age, commends Charlie Rose for the way he has read the passage.
Maxwell when asked about his wife, describes the first time he brought her to meet his father. The father said 'We have not had a star in our family in a long time'. Maxwell was blessed with a long happy marriage.
He speaks quite surprisingly about the special privileges of Old Age, especially in its giving one the experience for enriched memory. When Charlie Rose asks him what makes a writer he gives a one - word answer ,"Deprivation" The writer writes to find a way to make up what he is missing.
This was an especially good conversation, with a person who age really has seemed to make wiser.
