An Interview with Arundhati Roy

In her interview on the Paris Review, writer Arundhati Roy talks about genre, activism, their overlap, and so much more.

"To see that two-decade period as a gap, or the nonfiction as separate from the fiction, would be to misunderstand Roy’s project; when finding herself described as “what is known in twenty-first-century vernacular as a ‘writer-activist,’ ” she confessed that term made her flinch (and feel “like a sofa-bed”). The essays exist between the novels not as a wall but as a bridge."
