About this title


The American novelist discusses literature, his writings, and the role of history in fiction

From Library Journal:

Ever since the Paris Review ``Writers at Work'' series 30 years ago, demand for literary interviews has grown. These 25 conversations, spanning more than three decades in Styron's career, should please all devotees of the genre. What effect does his Southern background have on Styron's work? Who were his mentors and models? What problems did he have as a white author speaking as a black ( Nat Turner ), or as a gentile writing about Auschwitz ( Sophie's Choice )? Styron's forthright answers to questions such as these reveal the sincerity, intelligence, and seriousness that we prize in his novels. Michael Edmonds, State Historical Soc. of Wisconsin Lib., Madison please note: LJ's review of David M. Ber geron's Shakespeare's Romances and the Royal Family (LJ 4/15/85) contained the sen tence ``The author's argument is reasoned and restrained; he makes no large claims,'' to which should have been added ``asking only to stimulate further discussion, the pur pose of the best scholarship.'' Also, at the end of the review the sentence ``Yet there is much here that is provocative and worthy of attention'' was omitted.
