Today’s post is the second part of my Q&A with Lev Grossman, senior writer and book critic at Time Magazine. Lev was one of two critics who selected the Time 100 list. For a recap, check out part one.
On with the questions.
Today’s a cool day at 101 Books.
Lev Grossman was kind enough to answer a few of my questions about the selection process for the Time Magazine All-Time 100 list. Lev is a senior writer at Time and one of the two book critics (the other, Richard Lacayo) who selected the entire Time 100 list.
Not only that, but Lev is a successful author himself–having now written four novels. Last Tuesday, The Magician King–the follow-up to Lev’s widely-read The Magicians novel–was released. It’s been described as Harry Potter for grown-ups with a little Narnia thrown in there.
Anyway, in the middle of all that, Lev took the time to answer a few questions about the Time list, the selection process, the books that were excluded, and so on.
Part 2 comes tomorrow. I’ll also include a few of my thoughts after each set of questions.
