Remarkable and revealing interviews exploring the process of creativity with the great artists, composers and writers of our time. In this series of interviews drawn from his acclaimed BBC Radio 3 series, John Tusa interviews some of the leading creative minds of our time: Howard Hodgkin, Antony Caro, Elliot Carter, Eve Arnold, David Sylvester, Edward Bond, Nicholas Grimshaw, Gyorgy Ligeti, Milos Forman, Paula Rego, Harrison Birtwistle, Frank Auerbach, Tony Harrison and Muriel Spark. Including three painters, three composers, a sculptor, a photographer, a playwright, a critic, an architect, a film director, a novelist and a poet, the book is an indispensable guide to our contemporary art and artists. In addition to the interviews, there are also two stimulating essays by John Tusa: on creativity, and on interviewing.
