Blaise Cendrars

In 1950 Michel Manoll conducted a series of radio interviews with Blaise Cendrars (above), parts of which were later translated and published in Paris Review No. 38.

And Faulkner, you know him?  
No, I don’t know Faulkner. I’ve never met him. Malraux asked me to do a preface for the translation of Light in August; I didn’t want to do it, finding it too regional, too literary, and written as one doesn’t write any more, too well.
