The DNA of Litrature. Between now and next July, The Paris Review will be putting all of its writers-at-work interviews online, starting with those from the 1950s, which include William Faulkner, Truman Capote and Dorothy Parker. Good stuff.

Shame I have to wait near six months to read the Martin Amis interview.

Maybe I'll check out that Faulkner guy in the meantime.

Actually, it seems like the Faulkner interview has gone missing.

I love this series. Generally my sentiments are with Forrester (I'm not interested in writers, only what they write), but I've yet to pick one of these W@W up without reading every single word. Thanks for the post!

Why is this called "DNA", though? I honestly couldn't figure out where they got that title.

They got DNA from Douglas Noel Adams. Even though they didn't list him, they named the entire list after the greatest writer of all time. Douglas Adams is so far beyond any of those other writers that he's above the list.

["This"] is in brackets, too.

(I think I just deconstructed my own first post!)
