Here is a long interview with the great Marilynne Robinson in the Paris Review. It's very good, though there's nothing in there that I didn't get from Marilynnne when we met and much that isn't in there that I did. (A good deal of this was not included in The Sunday Times piece for reasons of length.) But what is striking about the article is the author's statement in the introduction - 'For this interview, we met on six occasions over a five-month period.' Bloody hell. I spent half a day interviewing Marilynne. Sometimes I just feel so.... so... so... efficient.
