Editorial Reviews

Review

“The Paris Review books should be given out at dinner parties, readings, riots, weddings, galas -- shindigs of every shape. And they're perfect for the classroom too, from high schools all the way to MFA programs. In fact, I run a whole semester-long creative writing class based on the interviews. How else would I get the world's greatest living writers, living and dead, to come into the classroom with their words of wisdom, folly and fury? These books are wonderful, provocative, indispensible.” ―Colum McCann, novelist and Hunter College professor

“The most remarkable and extensive interviewing project we possess.” ―Richard Eder, The New York Times

“A small treasure. The interviews are literary landmarks, and the gossip, humor, ideas, and practical advice dispensed are bracing.” ―San Francisco Chronicle

“Utterly absorbing . . . The interviews are all fascinating and often quite funny.” ―The Boston Globe

“Groundbreaking, eclectic, indispensable Q&As.” ―Elle

“As The Paris Review Interviews reveals, there is an art to the interview and a value to what it brings. . . . In the best interviews, the exchange of question and answer brings the authors to life.” ―The Wall Street Journal

“Fascinating interviews . . . [The subjects] discuss their writing and methods with detail and candidness found nowhere else. While lit fans will undoubtedly be satisfied, aspiring authors will glean tremendous insight from these masters of the craft.” ―The Plain Dealer (Cleveland)

“The unguarded moment . . . that's the holy grail for any interviewer trying to discover what makes a writer tick. The Paris Review has a long history of delivering such moments in the author interviews it has conducted over the past half century.” ―The Seattle Times

“A stimulating, funny, and provocative snapshot of five decades' worth of (mostly) American literary history . . . The resulting conversations are luminous and often revelatory.” ―Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Fascinating . . . This book will intrigue and delight any serious reader or writer. It may even inspire.” ―The Times Literary Supplement (London)

“Here is a canon of great minds. . . . A fascinating attempt at getting to the heart of how writers work.” ―Financial Times (London)
