    I caught much of tonight’s conversation on the Charlie Rose show, which was fascinating.

    I’ve never before considered subscribing to The Paris Review, and now I am committed to doing so!

    I never knew who Charlie Rose was before watching the conversation but he is a really smart guy and great speaker.

    Yes it was outstanding. I immediately went online and subscribed. I teach literature and eng comp to college students from all over the world and will inspire my students with reprints about writing and reading excellent pieces. Loved all four guests and when Charlie read excerpts of their works I wAs blown away by the exquisite writing. Thank you from broadway & Canal

    Watched the Charlie Rose interview with the Paris Review people…Read about James Salter et alin Vanity Fair: fascinating. Am looking for his “All That Ends”. Charlie Rose is a great interviewer. Am a great fan of Plimpton, the would be athlete adventurer. The show led me to the P.R. interview with Jonathan Franzen whose “Freedom” I am beginning to-night. Thank you all.

    As usual, Charlie Rose and guests delivered an insightful, witty and informative conversation. After reading a dozen or so issues many years ago, somehow the Paris Review slipped under my radar. Inexcusable! I am so pleased to re-discover such a gem. Thanks Charlie and Happy Sixtieth Anniversary Paris Review!

    Thank you Charlie Rose for having a program with just a round oak table, no frills and the most interesting conversations. The Paris Review is a good example of the quality of your guest.In my opinion, you are the best American interviewer.

    I have always hated the word “literature”. To me, it speaks of high brows and haughty, unintelligible phrases. But the interview w/Rose made me come to this site and I sampled a poem, and I cried at the end, but didn’t know why. And I understood, maybe for the first time, and I needed to tell you.

    I saw this,yes it was interesting.I however want to convey this. I have a son who is a twenty-something and an avid reader since childhood who ONLY wants to read actual books,philosophy,history,literature not via KINDLE.I’d mentioned getting him a Kindle once and will never make that mistake again. PLEASE don’t think all young people are the same. They’re not. There’s nothing like holding and reading an actual book.

    Interesting interview…especially the reading of bits from each author.
