review 1: This fun and informative collection of author interviews hit my sweet spot. John Freeman introduces each author interview with an insightful summary of the author's work to date, and the essays are as diverse as the people being interviewed. The essays are short, but this is not a book to read in one sitting. Dip in and out. Read up on your fave authors first, or start at with authors new to you. This is a book I will certainly dip into again. Most of the authors interviewed were not new to me, but there where several I had not heard of before. Oh and yes, my TBR pile just got longer. Thanks John!
review 2: This is the book I ached for when I was in grad school and that I find myself just as excited to pour through now. Reading it is like being a fly on the wa
... morell of the living rooms of so many of your favorite contemporary writers. And it's a win/win: If you're already familiar with the authors, you'll enjoy reading these profiles; if you aren't, this book is like an intimate first handshake, introducing you. Highly recommended. less

Nice to read in small sections, but somewhat formulaic and repetitive.
