Book Condition: As New
Dust Jacket Condition: None, As Issued
Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. 460 pages. Published in 2014. Retrospective collection of author interviews. Quite simply, the best author-interview collection of its kind of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. Presents, in one elegant collectible volume, the BOMB Magazine author interviews. They are unique in the history of this fascinating and new literary genre (there were no author interviews until the 20th century) : Here we have two "similar-yet-dissimilar-at-the-same-time" authors talking about each other's work, other writers, and other shared interests. The pairings of the interviews are dazzling in their originality and appropriateness. "Drawing on the first 30 years of BOMB Magazine, this anthology of interviews brings together some of the greatest figures of world literature for a brilliant and unforgettable collection of sharp, insightful, and intimate author conversations. Here we have a conversation with Jonathan Franzen, still an unkown author, on the eve of the publication of 'The Corrections'; and one with Roberto Bolano, near the end of his life. Lydia Davis and Francine Prose break down the intricacies of Davis' methods. Edwidge Danticat and Junot Diaz discuss the power of Caribbean diasporic fiction" (Publisher's blurb). And that's just for starters. It would be hard, if not impossible, to find a collection of similar importance and achievement. An absolute "must-have" title for Modern First and contemporary literature collectors. This title is a great collection. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Many copies available online have flaws or are remainder-marked (even if the dealers do not always say so). A scarce copy thus. Some of the greatest writers of our time. A fine copy.
