John Freeman is a former president of the National Book Critics Circle and was editor of Granta until 2013. He has written for the New York Times Book Review, the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Guardian (London).

Samenvatting

A selection of Granta editor John Freeman's very best conversations with the very best novelists of our time, including some revised and unpublished pieces. How To Read A Novelist is a companion for anyone who loves reading; an invaluable reference for writers; and a slap in the face to those who would argue that the novel is dead.

'A gift for readers and writers.' Junot Díaz

For the last fifteen years, if a novel was published, John Freeman has been there to greet it. As a critic for more than two hundred newspapers worldwide, he has reviewed thousands of books and interviewed scores of writers, and in How to Read a Novelist, he shares with us what he has learned.

From such international stars as Doris Lessing, Haruki Murakami, Salman Rushdie and Mo Yan; to British talents including Ian McEwan, Jim Crace, A. S. Byatt and Alan Hollinghurst; American masters such as Don DeLillo, Norman Mailer, Toni Morrison and Philip Roth; to the new guard of Jennifer Egan, Junot Díaz, Dave Eggers and Jonathan Franzen – Freeman has talked to everyone.

A fascinating collection of his most insightful interviews, essays and articles, many of them new or completely rewritten for this volume, How to Read a Novelist is for every aspiring writer and engaged reader.
