I'm Robbing The Believer to Feed You, My Faithless, Fickle Flock

Besides Don Diva, The Believer is the only magazine out there actively giving the toll free internet a run for my meager funds. Listed below are a few interviews with writers of varying styles and formats. Enjoy.

Lydia Davis, author of Almost No Memory and Break It Down, translator of Proust’s Du côté de chez Swann, winner of many of the major American writing awards, including a MacArthur Fellowship for fiction.

David Simon, creator/writer/producer of HBO's The Wire and author of the books Homicide and The Corner, is interviewed by Nick Hornby, author of High Fidelity and Slam.

T Cooper, author of Some of the Parts and Lipshitz Six, or Two Angry Blondes (and perhaps the one person in the literary world with whom I could stand to have a book club) is interviewed by Sigrid Nunez, author of The Last of Her Kind, A Feather on the Breath of God and Mitz: The Marmoset of Bloomsbury.
