Great interviews of our time
Free: two books, with the 'Independent on Sunday' print edition on 23 November and 30 November
Tuesday 18 November 2008
For more than two decades, the interviews published in 'The Independent' and 'The Independent on Sunday' have been the envy of the rest of the media. From this weekend, readers have a chance to be reminded why, and to savour some of the most celebrated encounters again, in two 128-page anthologies – one devoted to men and the other to women.
Written by such acclaimed interviewers as Lynn Barber, Zoë Heller, Robert Chalmers, Deborah Ross, Hunter Davies, Cole Moreton, John Walsh, Marianne Macdonald, Will Self and Sebastian Faulks, the two volumes are by turns empathetic and confrontational, informative and subversive, poignant and hilarious; they are also, above all, highly entertaining.
Volume One: Men, Sunday 23 November
Includes interviews with George Michael, Tom Wolfe, Melvyn Bragg, Uri Geller, Jimmy Savile, Salman Rushdie, Helmut Newton, Arthur Scargill, Peter Mandelson, Don King, Ian Paisley, Osama bin Laden, David Irving, Robert Kilroy-Silk, Edward Heath, Gordon Ramsay, Nick Griffin, Peter Ackroyd, Hunter S Thompson and Martin Amis
Volume Two: Women, Sunday 30 November
Includes interviews with Paula Yates, Kate Moss, Tori Amos, Imelda Marcos, Esther Rantzen, Norma Major, Ruby Wax, Elle MacPherson, Rosemary Conley, Marie Helvin, Gillian Wearing, Ninette de Valois, Zadie Smith, Susie Orbach, Sinéad O’Connor, Kim Cattrall, Yoko Ono, Ann Coulter, Meg Mathews, Ellen MacArthur, Cerys Matthews, Fenella Fielding, Doreen Lawrence and Nancy Dell’Olio
