LITERATURE - Maya Angelou Interview with the Paris Review
A made-up bed, a bottle of Sherry, a dictionary, a Roget's Thesaurus, yellow pads, an ashtray, and a Bible. This random, somewhat odd collection of items are things the late Maya Angelou required when entering the writing process. This wonderful bit of insight about her begins an hour-long interview she gave to the Paris Review back in the Winter of 1988. This exchange is a really wonderful piece of history, particularly if you a writer - aspiring or otherwise.
