Welcome to the DNA of Literature
Welcome to the DNA of literature-over 50 years of literary wisdom rolled up
in 300+ Writers-at-Work interviews, now available online-free. Founder and
former Editor George Plimpton dreamed of a day when anyone-a struggling
writer in Texas, an English teacher in Amsterdam, even a subscriber in

"There is no other archive quite like The Paris Review interviews. The
National Endowment for the Arts could not be more pleased or more proud than
to make this resource available free to the American public."
-Dana Gioia, Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts
