Interviews with Great Writers
from the Paris Review

The Paris Review has posted its interviews with great writers to the internet. For over 50 years, the Review published interview with the likes of Faulkner, Hemingway, Albee, and Saul Bellow. Only those from the 50s have been posted so far, but there are many more to come in the new year.

In his interview (not yet posted), Tom Wolfe says, "All I need is a window not to write," which is why I gave up a corner office with lots of windows for an office on a quiet corridor, a small window, and absolutely no view.
That's my wimpy form of "precommitment strategy" - a far remove from burning bridges behind the troops to remove retreat from the list of viable options.
