The Believer Book of Writers Talking to Writers Summary


The Believer Book of Writers Talking to Writers by Vendela Vida

New in this edition are interviews with Jennifer Egan, Amy Hempel, Orhan Pamuk, Richard Powers, and Marjane Satrapi. This book is a collection of conversations between writers and their mentors, taken from the pages of "The Believer", along with previously unpublished conversations. These conversations are not limited to issues of writing and craft, but instead offer unfettered exchanges on a wide range of topics - from Buddhism to infinity, politics to mountain climbing.The interviews feature the serious-yet-casual Believer approach to the standard, often formal, interview format. David Foster Wallace, for example, fields the question, 'Do you want to talk about your history with various forms of tobacco?' while George Saunders reflects upon this oft-pondered mystery: 'What's up with the crows in Syracuse?' Interviews include Zadie Smith talking with Ian McEwan; Jonathan Lethem talking with Paul Auster; Adam Thirlwell talking with Tom Stoppard; Susan Choi talking with Francisco Goldman; ZZ Packer talking with Edward P. Jones; Dave Eggers talking with David Foster Wallace; Julie Orringer talking with Tobias Wolff; and Ben Marcus talking with George Saunders.
