Got a great interview with Marilynne Robinson, whose novel Gilead I enthusiastically reviewed when it first came out, and which I re-read a couple of weeks ago, finding all of its myriad virtues very, very much intact. She's at the University of South Carolina next week, and while I usually don't all that much care for literary evenings, I kind of can't wait to hear her. Will post the interview next week. In the meantime, I notice in my original review that I said her prose draws to mind Wallace Stevens and Emily Dickinson -- turns out those are two of her major influences.
