Conversations with Walker Percy
University Press of Mississippi, 1985 - Literary Criticism - 325 pages
These collected interviews, like a visit with Percy at his home on the Bogue Falaya River, provide refreshing close-up encounters with one of America's most celebrated writers.
These twenty-seven interviews cover a period of twenty-two years, from the time of the publication of Percy's first novel, The Moviegoer, in 1961, until 1983, when he was interviewed about his friendship with Thomas Merton.
This volume is the second in the Literary Conversations series. These unabridged interviews, collected from a variety of sources, will give reading pleasure to general readers who wish to know Percy and his works more closely, and they will be of great use to Percy scholars.

Review: Conversations with Walker PercyUser Review - Julie - Goodreads
For the casual reader, the book may be too dense for a read through. For those looking to learn more about Percy, the interviews are fascinating arrays of his personality, intelligence and wit. Four stars for repetitiveness and thoroughness of inclusion (double-edged sword!). Read full review
