    schema:description ""Known as "Captain Fiction," Gordon Lish (b. 1934) is among the most influential, and controversial, figures in modern American letters. As an editor at Esquire (1969-1977), Alfred A. Knopf (1977-1995) and The Quarterly (1987-1995), and as a teacher both in and outside the university system, he has worked closely with many of the most pioneering writers of recent times, including Raymond Carver, Don DeLillo, Barry Hannah, Amy Hempel, Sam Lipsyte, and Ben Marcus. A prolific author of stories and novels, Lish has also won a cult following for his own fiction, earning comparisons with Gertrude Stein and Samuel Beckett. Conversations with Gordon Lish collects all of Lish's major interviews, covering the entire span of his extraordinary career. Ranging from 1965 to 2015, these interviews document his pivotal role in the period's defining developments: the impact of the Californian counterculture, the rise and decline of so-called literary "minimalism," dramatic transformations in book and magazine publishing, and the ongoing growth of creative writing instruction. Over time, Lish--a self-described "dynamic conversationalist"--Forges an evolving conversation not only with his interviewers, but with the central trends of twentieth-century literary history. This book will be essential reading not only for students and fans of contemporary fiction, but for writers too: included are several interviews in which Lish discusses his secretive private writing classes. Indeed, these pieces themselves amount to a masterclass in Lishian literary language--each is a work of art in its own right."--provided by publisher."@en ;
