Book Description

May 22 2013 Seagull Books - The French List
Selected from the pages of Le Monde, the interviews conducted by Florence Noiville are unequaled in literary journalism. In Literary Miniatures, Noiville captures the words and views of some of the best known writers of the twentieth century, engaging luminaries like Saul Bellow, Nadine Gordimer, Aharon Appelfeld, and A. S. Byatt in revealing dialogue. In this collection, Noiville converses with Don DeLillo, reasons with Adolfo Bioy Casares, passes the time with Milan Kundera, and gently interrogates John Le Carré.


Fluent in many languages, Noiville conducted a number of these interviews in the subject’s native language, engaging these extraordinary writers on their own terms. Inimitably intimate, the interviews are a window through which readers can come to know the writers behind some of the greatest works of literature of the last one hundred years. Sure to delight lovers of literature and biography, this book is the perfect expression of the art of the interview and a priceless artifact for enthusiasts and scholars alike.

Review

"A real delight to read with unexpected, tangential detours, an ear for the uncanny and a distilled, bare-boned way of writing."
(Outlook India 2014-07-28)
