Here are some of my favorite interviews with me that are available on the web today. While it’s generally unfashionable, I like the interview format. For one thing, you get the persons voice unimpeded by any (frequently incorrect) assumptions imposed by the journalist doing the interview. Also, I think it’s sometimes good to have a prompt rather than finding some awkward way of getting to your point. Sometimes there’s more clarity in the interview than in the essay.
