My favourite show is back on UK television again. Its name is “The Book Show“. The programme has been on for nearly three years now. The first episode of the third series was aired last week on the Sky Arts channel and was quite interesting; Zoë Heller, the author of “Notes on a Scandal” talked about books that she had recently been reading in the section called “What’s on my bedside table”. The three books she mentioned are super riveting: Reappraisals: Reflections on the Forgotten Twentieth Century by Tony Judt, Netherland by Joseph O’Neill and The Paris Review Interviews, Vol 1 with an introduction by Philip Gourevitch. I happened to obtain a copy of the latter ages ago and I can concur with the author that it is an absolute treat. The book contains a number of startling interviews with some well known writers such as Truman Capote, T. S. Eliot, Kurt Vonnegut, Joan Didion and so on. The Paris Review Interviews, Vol 2 is an equal gem and I already have it. This volume brought to you some other celebrated writers; for example, Toni Morrison, William Faulkner, Stephen King, Alice Munro etc. And The latest, Volume 3, was published just this month and is sure to have some very revealing and dazzling interviews with the most well recognised writers. I cannot wait to get a copy of it.
