Clips from Our Interview with Frank


Frank talked with Narrative’s senior editor Lacy Crawford in March 2004, a few months before his death. The interview, Frank’s last, can be found in print in our Archive. 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.
