Description: Since its founding in 1953, The Paris Review has published interviews with many of the world's great writers. In them George Plimpton has found countless asides, observations, and other gems that have now been collected for this book. For ease of reference, they have been divided into sections ("On Motivation", "On Work Habits", "On Critics", etc.). "A writer needs his poisons", observed Philip Roth. "The antidote to his poisons is often a book". And Dorothy Parker recalled the legendary editor Harold Ross: "On one of Mr. Benchley's manuscripts (Ross) wrote in the margin opposite 'Andromache, ' 'Who he?'" "Mr. Benchley wrote back, 'You keep out of this.'" Wiliam Faulkner spoke of being a writer: "The only thing that can alter the good writer is death. Good ones don't have time to bother with success or getting rich". Other literary figures represented include Truman Capote, Marianne Moore, E. B. White, Tennessee Williams, Maya Angelou, E. L. Doctorow, Jorge Luis Borges, and Ernest Hemingway.

This is an ideal gift, a thoroughly enjoyable compendium to read right through or dip into. This will be the only edition of this book available.
