On the Personal Essay: An interview with Phillip Lopate

A mark of good writers, whether fiction, essay, or poetry, is the ability to unflinchingly illuminate the emotional issues that people often try to suppress.

A prime exemplar is Phillip Lopate, long acclaimed as a writer of the widest range: from film reviews to poetry, novels to, most of all, personal essays.

Lopate is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, been a judge for the Pulitzer Prize, and is Professor and Director of the nonfiction writing program at Columbia University.  He is my latest The Eminents interview in Psychology Today.
