I’ve never been a fan of listening to writers go on and on about their work (whether it be pretentious or boring) BUT I’ve find solace in The Paris Review’s series of interviews titled The Art of Fiction or The Art of Poetry, depending on who is being interviewed of course.

Their website only has samplings from more recent interviews but there are a couple of classics on the website in their entirety … I’ve posted William Faulkner’s The Art of Fiction No. 12, interviewed by Jean Stein. Enjoy.
