The Paris Review: Philip Gourevitch talks with Mary Karr
The Paris Review, named by Time Magazine "America's greatest literary journal," returns to Joe's Pub with a lively conversation about the craft of writing. The New York Times calls the Paris Review interviews "the most remarkable and extensive interviewing project we possess." Philip Gourevitch, editor of The Paris Review since 2005, staff writer at The New Yorker and author of "The Ballad of Abu Gharib," will talk with memoirist Mary Karr about her writing. Karr is the author of "The Liars' Club" and "Cherry" and her latest book, "Lit" was named one of the ten best books of 2009 by the New York Times. An Art of Memoir interview with Karr appeared in the winter issue of The Paris Review.
