British Broadcasting Company: Audio Interviews with Writers

The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) has a prodigious archive of audio interviews from their many decades of radio broadcasting, with this particular site paying homage to the many fine writers who they have spoken to over the years. Visitors can listen to the likes of Kingsley Amis talking about why he started writing, Robert Graves discussing his masterpiece "I, Claudius," and Virginia Woolf's remarks titled "a eulogy to words." There are audio clips from over thirty writers in total, including Elie Wiesel, Alice Walker, William Styron, Susan Sontag, Salman Rushdie, and the late George Bernard Shaw addressing a group of young people where at one point he remarks on his own education, "I could not read schoolbooks, because they are written by people who don't know how to write." For further information, each selection of audio clips contains a link to a brief profile of each author and additional Web resources, where available.
