The Paris Review

With thanks to Bob, who plugged this on his blog. The Paris Review website has downloadable pdfs of interviews with literary giants, including Nabokov, Huxley, Cheever and Greene. Great reading for when you're between books.

Thanks for this. I used to have a subscription to the Paris Review but it ain't cheap so I let it lapse. Nice to know there is still something free out there! And I somehow find reading about other writers quite reassuring, I like to hear about their insecurities, makes me feel a little better.

I was impressed by just how much free stuff they have. You're right, it's reassuring to discover your idols share lots of the same insecurities. Hmm. Maybe it's the hallmark of a good writer(!).

It can also be a bit depressing, though, to find that publication and critical acclaim and 'success' by any number of different measures doesn't put more than a dent in a writer's insecurity.
