Every Paris Review interview from the last 60 years
Founded in Paris by Harold L. Humes, Peter Matthiessen, and George Plimpton in 1953, The Paris Review began with a simple editorial mission: to emphasize creative work—fiction and poetry with the aim of merely removing criticism from the dominating place it holds in most literary magazines and putting it pretty much where it belongs, i.e., somewhere near the back of the book.
To our delight the publication has recently made available online every literary interview they have published for the past 60 years. Fascinating!
