About this product
- DescriptionWhy did Jay McInerney once blow up a lavatory? Why does Peter Handke still mourn the passing of Slobodan Milosevic? Why does Michel Houellebecq miss being in a psychiatric hospital? Why doesn't Wole Soyinka want to visit Australia? And what made Elfriede Jelinek afraid of receiving her Nobel Prize? From Ben Naparstek, editor of The Monthly, comes a collection of interviews with 39 of the world's best writers. In the course of these remarkable encounters, he finds out why - amongst other things - Tony Judt refuses to debate Christopher Hitchens, why Umberto Eco snubbed Stanley Kubrick, why John Malkovich threatened to shoot Robert Fisk, and why James Wood wants to hide behind a pseudonym. In Conversation offers a series of personal and provocative portraits that illuminate what makes great writers tick.
- Author BiographyBen Naparstek is the editor of the Monthly and the coeditor of the Jacqueline Rose Reader. He has written regularly about literature and politics for a wide array of international publications.
