by Melville House
We have a great selection of Last Interview ebooks on sale this week. Each volume contains the subject’s last interview, as well as a handful of the most interesting interviews they gave throughout their lives. We hope you enjoy!
Anthony Bourdain: The Last Interview
The brilliant intellect and candor of Anthony Bourdain is on full display in this collection of interviews from throughout his remarkable career, including interviews with Neil Degrasse Tyson and Trevor Noah.
David Bowie: The Last Interview
In this remarkable collection, Bowie reveals the fierce intellectualism, artistry, and humor behind it all. From his very first interview—as a teenager on the BBC, before he was even a musician—to his last, Bowie takes on the most probing questions, candidly discussing his sexuality, his drug usage, his sense of fashion, how he composed, and more.
Nora Ephron: The Last Interview
Packed with her characteristic wit, wisdom, and charm, this collection of interviews with Nora Ephron celebrates one of the most beloved voices in American film and letters. Ranging from her days as a writer for Esquire and New York—well before Silkwood, When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle catapulted her to stardom—to her very last interview, this collection shines a spotlight on the life and work of a dazzling talent.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez: The Last Interview
In addition to the first-ever English translation of Marquez’s last interview, this unprecedented volume includes his first interview, conducted while he was in the throes of writing One Hundred Years of Solitude, which reveals the young writer years before the extraordinary onslaught of success that would make him a household name around the world.
Billie Holiday: The Last Interview
In frank and open conversations, Billie Holiday proves herself far more articulate, aware, intelligent, and even heroic than she’s often portrayed. This collection is an essential volume for all who have been moved by her music.
Ray Bradbury: The Last Interview
Throughout that last talk, as well as the interviews collected here from earlier in his career, Bradbury constantly twists the elements of his life into a discussion of the influences and creative processes behind his remarkable developments and inventions for the literary form he mastered. Mixed with cheerful gossiping about his travels and the characters of his life, it makes for a rich reading experience and a revealing collection of interviews.
J. D. Salinger: The Last Interview
From the moment J. D. Salinger published The Catcher in the Rye in 1951, he was stalked by besotted fans, would-be biographers, and pushy journalists. In this collection of rare and revealing encounters with the elusive literary giant, Salinger discusses—sometimes willingly, sometimes grudgingly—what that onslaught was like, the autobiographical origins of his art, and his advice to writers.
Christopher Hitchens: The Last Interview
One of his generation’s greatest public intellectuals, and perhaps its fiercest, Christopher Hitchens was a brilliant interview subject. This collection—which spans from his early prominence as a hero of the Left to his controversial support for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan toward the end of his life—showcases Hitch’s trademark wit on subjects as diverse as his mistrust of the media, his love of literature, his dislike of the Clintons, and his condemnation of all things religious.
