For those of you who read the blog via Bloglines or via some other newsfeeder, I thought I'd pick out some of the recent interview highlights on RSB.

My interview with Maurice Blanchot's English translator Charlotte Mandell has, gratifyingly, been fairly widely linked to. Astonishingly, it is Charlotte's first ever interview.

My short interview with Joseph Sherman, the Woolf Corob Fellow in Yiddish Studies at the Faculty of Oriental Studies at the University of Oxford, and expert on forgotten Yiddish modernist Dovid Bergelson has been less widely linked, but I think it is a fascinating piece and I'd urge you all to read it - and then to go on to read Bergelson (whose Shadows of Berlin was reviewed for RSB by Leora Skolkin-Smith).

New on the site yesterday, is my interview with postmodern "holocaust" novelist Raymond Federman. This is, I think, his first interview in the British "media" (is RSB the "media"? I'm not sure!) and is, to my mind, a really engaging piece. Federman is a singular writer and certainly worthy of your time.
