Now, for the first time, you can read, search and download any or all of over three hundred in-depth interviews with poets, novelists, playwrights, essayists, critics, musicians, and more, whose work set the compass of twentieth-century writing, and continue to do so into the twenty-first century.
I liked this quote from Dorothy Parker

  • Oh, great, great, great. I'd heard of this and not bookmarked the page. I did now. I don't have time to read it now, actually, but I will when I can. Thank you!
  • Thanks! I've read most of these, but it's great to know I can find them all on my little screen if I need to. Cool!
