And the greatness of the University Press of Mississippi continues. Both this authors series and the Conversations with Filmmakers series collect interviews with their subjects over the length of that subject's career. These with McEwan go from the 70's through the late 2000's. It's a pleasure to find that McEwan is as smart and engaging as his books are. The interview done by Zadie Smith is a standout.
