Saramago, Jose (Author); Plimpton, George (Editor) & Barroso, Donzelina (Interviewer). THE PARIS REVIEW: THE ART OF FICTION INTERVIEW WITH JOSE SARAMAGO. New York City, NY: The Paris Review, 1998. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 242 pages. Fine.

Rare Jose Saramago collectible item. A fine copy of the Winter 1998 (Volume 149) Paris Review Interview Issue. Presents the most in-depth Interview with the Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1998, which appears in published form for the very time and has not been collected in book form. Celebrated for its brilliance and tenacity as one of the world's greatest literary publications, The Paris Review is perhaps the most influential and most important of its kind. The Paris Review is best-known for its Author Interviews, which are indispensable to an understanding and appreciation of 20th-century and contemporary literature. But the magazine has also published fiction and essays of the highest quality. Saramago was an anomaly who came out of nowhere, seemingly born a genius. Every single page of every single book he has ever written makes the reader feel that he or she is in the hands of an unsurpassable Master. "He got ahead of us; he is ahead of us. His work belongs to our future" (Ursula K. LeGuin). An absolute "must-have" title for Jose Saramago collectors. This title is a classic Issue. This is one of very few copies still available online and despite its imperfection (slight rubbing on the softcovers) is still in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright. A scarce copy thus. Regarded by Harold Bloom as one of the two greatest novelists of our time (the other being Philip Roth), Jose Saramago will be read as probably the greatest European novelist of the last fifty years. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1998. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JOSE SARAMAGO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $30.00
