The Paris Review Interviews by Paris Review

The Paris Review is an English-language literary magazine based in New York City. As its name suggests it was founded in Paris in 1953, for "the good writers and good poets, the non-drumbeaters and non-axe grinders. So long as they're good." It is best known for author interviews, in which the authors tell in their own words the craft of writing and criticisms of their own works; as well as a forum for new and upcoming authors. Prior to 2005 it focused on prose fiction and poetry, after which it also included nonfiction pieces and interviews with nonfiction writers. Some of the best work first published in The Paris Review is now available in book anthology form. The Paris Review awards a number of prizes each year, including the Plimpton Prize, a $10,000 prize awarded annually for the best work of fiction or poetry by an emerging or previously unpublished writer.

The 1226th greatest nonfiction book of all time
