In the audio clips here, Frank reflects on his early days in New York as a writer and jazz musician; he tells us about finding the courage to write Stop-Time and about the instinct, hard work, and lifelong habits of reading that guided his writing. He also discusses his fears about and hopes for the publishing business today.
