The Paris Review Interviews Now Online




The Paris Review, the great literary journal co-founded by George Plimpton, unveiled last week a new web site and a big archive of interviews with famous literary figures. Spanning five decades, the interviews often talk about the “how” of literature (to borrow a phrase from Salman Rushdie) – that is, how writers go about writing. Rummaging through the archive, you will encounter conversations with TS Eliot, William Faulkner, Ralph Ellison, Ernest Hemingway, Simone de BeauvoirSaul Bellow, Jorge Luis BorgesNorman Mailer, Mary McCarthyVladimir Nabokov, John Steinbeck, Joan Didion, Kurt Vonnegut, Eudora WeltyRaymond Carver, Russell Banks, Don DeLillo, Toni Morrison, Paul Auster, etc. And, amazingly, this list only scratches the surface of what’s available.

Note: These interviews are separately available in book format: The Paris Review Interviews, Volumes 1-4.
