First Edition was a weekly interview-style television show that aired for three years in the mid-1980s. Anchored by Nancy Evans and John Leonard in the first season and then by Nancy Evans and Walter Clemons in the second and third season, it was the critically acclaimed first stop for eminent writers of the time...The following interviews not only offer a social history of the literary, cultural and political events that animated these writers’ work, but, taken together, this series of author portraits explores timeless questions of what it means to write and write well. How does one become a successful writer? What fears and aspirations drove these men and women to write? How did they arrive at their style, choose their form, and develop their voice?..First Edition was committed to connecting readers with text, and the depth and pointedness of the interviews will surely inspire viewers to go to the source. Thirty years on, First Edition remains fresh and relevant. Aspiring writers will find a wealth of knowledge in these interviews and anyone with an active mind will find entertaining engagement.
