Belles Étrangères, the documentary
Back in November 2009 I was invited to France to tour with 11 other American authors for a few weeks as guests of an annual festival called Belles Étrangères. (I blogged about it here and here.) Part of the program was a documentary they filmed about all of us in the US during the summer of 2009. You can now watch that video streaming for free.
This is an hour-long documentary featuring interiews with each of the 12 authors talking about the writer's life, creativity, and influences. There's some wisdom and quite a bit of humor. Watch the video here. There is no time code but I'm the fourth interview in, just after Hannah Tinti.
The other authors (not necessarily in order of appearance) are:
Andrew Sean Greer
