"I only wish the book was twice as a long."
"Zinos-Amaro is a skilled interviewer and Silverberg a brilliant polymath looking back at a long life well spent... I learned something on every page."
"Silverberg is as brilliant as you expect him to be, and Alvaro Zinos-Amaro knows how to bring that brilliance out of him. An excellent and important book."
"A fascinating portrait of the artist, and a very nice supplement to his wonderful novels and stories."
"Readers have long shared in Silverberg's joy of discovery. Now, Bob and Alvaro's perceptive dialog allows us to discover the brilliant man behind the writing."
"This is your best chance to peer into the life and mind of the legendary Robert Silverberg--take it."
"In this revealing interview collection, Zinos-Amaro chats with Grand Master Robert Silverberg about his extensive travels across the globe, his love of opera film and classical music as well as writing. This is a candid look into the mind of one of the field's most respected writers."
"Though seemingly casual, compactly conveys a strong sense of the author's personal and literary world."
"Conversations revelatory of both personal and literary history, evocative of a vanished era... Zinos-Amaro probes his subject with well-educated, perceptive questions about everything under the sun, eliciting a telling verbal portrait of both men in the process... Zinos-Amaro generously throws open the floor to questions from "the audience." He never insists on forcing the conversation down predetermined paths if more alluring detours arise. And he is utterly simpatico with his older peer. In short, this book is the next best thing to hanging out with Silverberg himself, and a vital addition to the historical record of our genre."
"... a series of conversations with Robert Silverberg is a safe bet. The interviews cover his own work, writing in general, his political views, his career and relationships with other writers... The selection of questions is excellent... this is on balance one of the better collections of interviews I've read."
