These ingenious interviews will amuse, provoke and delight. Veering from the intensely serious to the wildly silly, Dead Interviews grants writers the chance to sit down with their heroes and flex their cerebral muscles, or simply indulge in some bookish gossip with a deceased icon. Pitch-perfect mimesis meets razor sharp literary criticism in the book that refuses to let dead writers lie.Contributors include: David Mitchell on Samuel Johnson, Cynthia Ozick on Henry James, AM Homes on Richard Nixon, John Burnside on Rachel Carson, Ian Rankin on Conan Doyle, Geoff Dyer on Nietzsche, Michel Faber on Duchamp, Rick Moody on Jimi Hendrix, Douglas Coupland on Andy Warhol plus Sam Leith, Neil Labute, Rebecca Miller, Joyce Carol Oates, ZZ Packer, William T Vollman and Samantha Morton.
