Inter/View

Talks with America's Writing Women

Twenty-eight powerful and individual voices are heard as Pearlman and Henderson offer a forum for a generous cross-section of the women writing fiction in America today—writers whose vital statistics cross the borders of race, religion, ethnic origin, sexual preference, marital status, age, geography, and lifestyle. Each writer is presented in an essay/interview reflecting the dynamic that develops naturally when two vital minds meet to discuss topic of mutually interest. The writers talk about the role of memory, space, and family in their work, about politics, dreams, and race, about their mothers and children and alma maters, about book reviewing and their agents, editors, and publishers, and about each others' work. A bibliography of principal works follows each essay. A valuable contribution to writers both female and male, for above all else, this is a book about writing.

Reviews

"Through a deft selection of writers with diverse geographic and ethnic backgrounds, Inter/View balances profiles of experienced writers with first novelists. . . . More than any book of its kind so far, Inter/View illuminates what drove the process of becoming a writer."—New York Times

"This collection of unfailingly perceptive reflections is a treasure trove for readers of today's fiction."—Publishers Weekly
