Adrian | 253 comments That was a better tribute to a celebrity than the hysterical goon who cried "leave Britney alone" over and over.

The spring/2010 issue of The Paris Review printed an interview with Ray Bradbury that had been rejected by former editor George Plimpton during the '70s. Apparently, it was considered too partial to the subject, but Plimpton was probably just being a literary snob. It's a bit unusual, because there are updated questions & responses that are added to the original interview without specifying the break; so the effect is of a younger & older version of Bradbury being interviewed simultaneously.

Only a snippet is available online, but look at that dismissal of John Irving:

The Art of Fiction

The interview archives are a treat.

I LOVED that interview, Adrian. Loved it. Especially the part about going to the circus at the end.
