Praise for BOMB: The Author Interviews
 
Bomb: The Author Interviews brings together a selection of conversations in a handsome anthology. The book, which offers 35 of the magazine’s interviews, is both a primer on authorial strategies and a record of the evolution of an iconic literary institution.”
—The Washington Post

“Lets readers into the room for conversations with Martin Amis, Junot Díaz, Jennifer Egan, Sharon Olds, and others about the craft of writing.”
—The Boston Globe

“‘Inspire’ might be a thin word in our cynical literary present, but dare I say that reading these conversations made me want to handwrite excerpts on index cards and lean them against books on my shelves.”
—The Millions

“Rare insight into the creative processes, feelings and work habits of contemporary prose writers and poets . . . These fascinating, in-depth and intimate conversations between notable writers delve into writing as a craft and as a calling.”
—Shelf Awareness

BOMB’s author interview series, which has been going for years, is one of the most inspiring dialogues between writers available.” 
—Bustle.com

“These are not your run of the mill author interviews featuring a journalist throwing canned questions at a writer, these are conversations between writers and delve into the essence  of creativity . . . Essential reading for any admirer of contemporary literature.”
—Seattle Post-Intelligencer
 
“Through the diverse range of voices represented, the book affords a window into the minds and the writing processes of some of the world’s best practitioners of poetry and prose.”
Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review

“Significant . . . [an] unusual and very engaging collection.”
—Kirkus Reviews

BOMB gives us conversation distilled into dream conversation, talk that transcends talk, thought that digs beneath transient impressions to get at the essence, the meaning, the purpose, the experience of the writing process. There is something to be remembered and learned from every one of the conversations gathered here. Read them for pleasure, for entertainment, for insight, and for clues to the mystery—to the hard labor and the profound satisfactions—of what writers do.”
—Francine Prose, from her introduction
