July 20, 2009Rue 89: Throughout this saga, you have a very strange view of time—should one see in this a relationship to David Lynch's artistic work, which is also very irrational? You've been a screenwriter for his movies. Gifford: David Lynch's work is David's. Mine is mine. Any relationship or influence between one and the other? I see our collaborations as compatible inspirations. Has the cinema changed your literary work? No. My writing has changed the cinema. —Translated from the interview at Rue 89
June 19, 2009Barry Gifford, an author who needs no introduction, recently sat down with Dave Newhouse to discuss writing, strange career paths, and the perks of being "an author who's like his characters." [Gifford] knows famous writers who "hate to write, but I've never thought of writing as a job. I still kind of sneak up on it, and it's always kind of amazing to me to think I was able to do this."
