Three Interviews with Rebecca Solnit

Rebecca Solnit’s new book A Paradise Built in Hell is receiving a fair amount of press attention, including reviews in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the B&N Review, and elsewhere. Most have been positive; Christine Stanstell’s review in the current New Republic, not yet available at the magazine’s poorly redesigned website, dissents from the general tone and offers a batch of very thoughtful criticisms. My own review of the book, published in the Brooklyn Rail, will appear here soon. In the meantime, here are links to three interviews with Solnit. One is by my old friend Lauren O’Neill-Butler and published on Artforum.com; one is by my new friend Astra Taylor and published in the fall issue of Bomb; and one is by a writer named Benjamin Cohen and published in The Believer.
