Amazing collection. More amazing? George freaking Plimpton signed my copy and bowed to me about six months before his death. I worship him.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312422393, Paperback)

For a half-century, The Paris Review has published writing and interviews from the world's most brilliant authors. To commemorate the anniversary, a breathtakingly diverse and illuminating anthology has been assembled. The greatest writers here write and speak upon the greatest subjects of our time:
*Lorrie Moore and Raymond Carver on "Heartbreak"
*Vladimir Nabokov on SEX
*Kurt Vonnegut and Susan Sontag on "War"
*Jonathan Franzen on "Betrayal"
*Jeffrey Eugenides and Norman Mailer on "Death"
*Philip Roth on "God"
Inspiring a dizzying range of thought and emotion, the collection holds a mirror to the world we live in and to the reader's own hopes, dreams, fears, and joy.
