This conversation between George Plimpton and Paul Theroux, part of a collaboration between 92Y’s Unterberg Poetry Center and The Paris Review, was recorded live at 92Y on December 18, 1989. We are able to share this recording thanks to a generous gift in memory of Christopher Lightfoot Walker, longtime friend of the Poetry Center and The Paris Review. An interview with Theroux has not appeared in The Paris Review.
92Y needs your help
Many of you have asked how you can help 92Y as we continue to face financial challenges due to Covid-19. You can help sustain our beloved institution and support the creation of new programs, both online and in person, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to access our programming, regardless of age, background or geographic location. Thank you for anything you can do to help.
