Publisher's Synopsis

Shakespeare and Company, Paris, is one of the world's most iconic and beautiful bookshops. Located on the banks of the Seine, opposite Notre-Dame, it's long been a meeting place for anglophone writers and readers.

In that tradition, determined for the bookshop to remain a place of meaningful and transformative conversation, owner Sylvia Whitman and novelist and literary director Adam Biles have hosted several hundred interviews with writers, ranging from prize-winning novelists to visionary non-fiction writers.

The Shakespeare and Company Book of Interviews is a selection of the best of these interviews from the last decade. Packed with warmth, sensitivity and humour, it's a celebration of the greatest writers of our age and an insight into the lives and thoughts behind some of today's most talked-about books.

Includes interviews with:
Madeline Miller, Olivia Laing, Marlon James, George Saunders, Karl Ove Knausgaard, Colson Whitehead, Hari Kunzru, Leïla Slimani, Jesmyn Ward, Reni Eddo-Lodge, Carlo Rovelli, Geoff Dyer & more.
