BOMB: The Author Interviews


Sold Out

Drawing on 30 years of BOMB Magazine, this anthology brings together some of the greatest figures of world literature for a brilliant and unforgettable collection of sharp, insightful and intimate author conversations. With an introduction by Francine Prose.

Published by Soho Press. 480 pages.

"BOMB gives us conversation distilled into dream conversation, talk that transcends talk, thought that digs beneath transient impressions to get at the essence, the meaning, the purpose, the experience of the writing process. There is something to be remembered and learned from every one of the conversations gathered here. Read them for pleasure, for entertainment, for insight, and for clues to the mystery—to the hard labor and the profound satisfactions—of what writers do."
—Francine Prose, from the Introduction

"Through the diverse range of voices represented, the book affords a window into the minds and the writing processes of some of the world's best practitioners of poetry and prose."
