Janet Malcolm’s feature interview, titled “The Art of Nonfiction,” in the new issue of the Paris Review is only the fourth nonfiction interview in the publication’s history. She discusses with Katie Roiphe her career as a journalist, the relationships to her subjects, and the presence of court cases and trials in her writing, touching on her new book from YUP: Iphigenia in Forest Hills: Anatomy of a Murder Trial.
Earlier this week, Malcolm sat down with Mark Oppenheimer, Brian Slattery, and Binnie Klein on Paper Trails, a new public-radio show about books, unafraid of giving its honest opinion on authors and their books before the author weighs in and responds.
