George Plimpton, Graywolf Press and the State of Literature Today

Today’s podcast of The Writing Bull offers you a two-fer:

Years ago I had the opportunity to interview one of the founders and the editor of The Paris Review, George Plimpton. You might recognize him, his face popped up all over the place in the second half of the twentieth century, playing in a professional baseball game or a bit part in a movie.

This past March, I had the chance to interview Steve Woodard, the editor of Graywolf Press, a publishing house that goes against the norms of New York publishing. Steve and I talk about some of the books they’ve recently published, as well as their conscious decision to seek out more writers of color.

Enjoy!
