Interview from the Edge published by Bloomsbury
Three of the interviews I conducted for the New Orleans Review will be published in Interviews from the Edge: 50 Years of Conversations about Writing and Resistance. The book, out in March 2019, is currently available for pre-order.
In the publisher's words:
"Interviews from the Edge presents a selection of conversations, drawn from 50 years of the international journal New Orleans Review, that dive head-first into the most enduring aesthetic and social concerns of the last half-century.
From reflections on the making of literature and films to personal accounts of writing inside racial divides and working against capital punishment, the writers, poets, and activists featured in this book offer not only a fresh perspective on our present struggles but also perhaps a way through them for writers and readers alike.
Interviewees include John Ashbery, James Baldwin, Jorge Luis Borges, Ernest Gaines, Valerie Martin, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Anais Nin, Sister Helen Prejean, and Bertrand Tavernier, among many others."
