Oldie, But Goodie: Harold Pinter is Interviewed by Larry Bensky for "The Paris Review" Fall 1966

Oldie, But Goodie: Harold Pinter is Interviewed by Larry Bensky for "The Paris Review" Fall 1966

I love The Paris Review. Of course I do! I only wish there was more fiction in its wonderful pages. Not that three short stories an issue is a bad thing, but I wish there was more (like five!) A girl can dream.

Provided below is a link to an interview playwright Harold Pinter did for The Paris Review in the autumn of 1966. I was torn between sharing this and sharing a potent short story I found today on Granta. Perhaps I'll share the latter one in an hour from now.

I adore The Paris Review because their interviews with authors are everything an interview should be. While I play around with my own structure, it's nice to read an interview that I didn't write for a change. The interviews featured in Paris Review are never formulaic and always intimate. I hope one day to be a contributing writer to this publication, and if you read this interview I think you'll see why.
