Lucky Me


Frances over at Nonsuch Book had a really fantastic giveaway and I won!  I am getting a four volume collection of Paris Review interviews with notable authors. I will excerpt Frances' description of this great prize:
For over fifty years, the Paris Review has published conversations with the most gifted writers of the day. Not just any conversations either. Conversations that eschew the obligations of publicity or marketing, and embrace the issues of the craft in the most direct and transparent fashion. Once you start reading these detailed interviews, it is difficult to put them aside. They are about both reading and writing, and offer such an exquisite banquet of rich detail, you will find yourself comparing all other author interviews you read with these. As publisher Picador describes them, the Paris Review interviews are "the gold standard of the literary Q&A."
 Thanks Frances!
