7 Comments on Paris Review: Author Interviews

  1. Fantastic interview with Dorothy Parker – I've loved her short stories for years, would have been too scared to interview her on reputation alone though!

  2. Wow, this is amazing. You can't get the Paris Review in my town and I had no idea that these interviews were online now: Borges's will be my first stop! You've solved my problem of what to read on slow days at work, THANK YOU! :)

  3. These are fantastic! I'm slowly making my way through all of them. So far Parker and Miller's are my favorite. Thanks for sharing!

  4. just wanted to take a moment to tell you how much i'm enjoying the new format. these interviews were absolutely wonderful to read, and full of life-changing advice. and i never would have found them without you! so, thanks :)
