    1. The writer interview is such a compelling art form. When it’s done right, it not only provides readers with a unique glimpse into the inner life of those who have moved, titillated, enticed, touched, and gutted us, but it is also, often, instructive, thought-provoking, and a powerful insight into the creative process itself. Ramona Koval always does it right. Her interviews are lengthy, pithy, and full of insight – a kind of discourse that stands on its own. This is due, not only to the inte [...]

    2. Ramona Koval is a successful journalist, radio broadcaster, published author and editor. During her career she has interviewed countless authors (here and overseas) and is one of Australia's biggest names in books and literature.Speaking Volumes - Conversations with Remarkable Writers is just that, a collection of interviews with some famous and some fascinating writers from across the globe.My favourite interview from the collection was without doubt her interview with Les Murray, conducted in [...]

    3. Romana Koval doesn’t quite accomplish her own goal of perfection in interviewing by her own definition of removing herself from the narrative and bringing forth the subject. Her opinions are often pronounced and sometimes even judgmental. However I DID actually enjoy most of the interviews because she liked to highlight the personality of these authors usually more than discussing their specific works. It’s a mixed bag of interest, as it was bound to be.Not a one-sitting read but fun to read [...]

    4. I enjoyed what I read of this. I just dipped in and read the interviews of writers I like, such Vidal, Banville, Amis. As ever Ian McEwan comes across as a bit up himself - you'd think someone who wrote the ending to Amsterdam, the whole of On Chesil Beach and just about everything since Saturday would be more modest! The John Le Carre interview was surprisingly (to me) good.Ramona Koval prepares amazingly well for each interview. She seems to have read everything each author has written and eve [...]

    5. I enjoyed the first version of this collection (Tasting Life Twice) so much that I bought this ebook update to keep - the first was borrowed from the library.Several interviews for the first collection have been dropped and new ones added, making a stronger collection. In both collections I found authors whose work I had not read and which I would like to pursue. Joyce Carol Oates heads the list; I'd like to read at least one of Norman Mailer's novels as he rated them more highly than his nonfic [...]

    6. Brilliant. I think I will buy it. Reread it. Put some postits in there to mark the names of authors I want to read. I love books that tell me about other books that I will probably love. Reassuring to know there will always be something wonderful out there to read.
