Conversations with Contemporary Writers
Kevin J. Kehrwald
Purdue University Press
Interviews with some of the country's top literary figures, including Charles Baxter, Charles Simic, Donald Revell, Gerald Stern, Sandra Gilbert, Catherine Bowman, Campbell McGrath, and a previously unpublished interview with Russell Banks, are anthologized for the first time in this compelling collection. The interviews are insightful, focusing primarily on concerns of craft, the works of the authors, and considerations of the complexities of the contemporary literary scene.
