Venerable at 35 and justly venerated for its unequalled mix of fiction, poetry, interview and essay, the Paris Review remains the single most important little magazine this country has produced. A glimpse through the table of contents of this new compendium will demonstrate why; the editors have launched a thousand careers and consistently published the best work of some of the best writers of our time. ―T. Coraghessan Boyle

A selection of representative fiction, nonfiction, and poetry from the Anthology from 1953 to present.

About the Author:
George Plimpton was an American journalist, actor, editor, and writer. Well-known for helping to found The Paris Review and for his sports writing, Plimpton died from natural causes in 2003.
From Publishers Weekly:
A cornucopia of fiction, poetry and prose from 35 years of the prestigious Paris Review , this rich collection comprises 187 items, many by award-winning authors, constituting a stunning array of literary strategies. Some of the stories by such authors as Evan Connell, Philip Roth and James Salter have attained the status of classics. Among the finest recent works, Rick Bass's "Wild Horses" entwines human sorrow with the suffering of animals; people who inhabit others' lives appear in Raymond Carver's "Why Don't You Dance" and Joy Williams's "Making Friends." Skewed, offbeat humor and incendiary wit surfaces in tales by Steven Dixon, Thomas M. Disch and T. Coraghessan Boyle. Reminiscences/interviews feature excerpts from the famed Writers-at-Work series ("Portraits" of, e.g., Yeats, Eliot, Faulkner and Frost); a profile of Lady Diana Cooper, author and friend of literary figures, by Shasha Guppy; and Bobby Anderson's riveting memoir of drug-addicted Edie Sedgwick, a doomed beauty in Andy Warhol's coterie. The diction of the poetry ranges from the tautly formalist to the magically charged, from the resilient accents of stylized speech to the intimately confessional. Arranged in five sections covering seven years each, the anthology conveys the sense that language is potent and redemptive; introductory notes are full of nuggets of literary and publishing history, and reflect the views of a succession of editors.
