If you are not familiar with Garance Dore, I highly suggest you follow her blog. She is a woman of many trades, most known for her street fashion photography and refreshingly realistic rants about the fashion world. One of my personal favorites: do I go to yoga? Ok, ok, I will go to yoga but I need a glass of wine afterwards. I interviewed Garance on what she's up to for Fashion week, her style inspiration, and her favorite places in New York.
I spoke with Guillaume Canet about his new film Les Petits Mouchoirs, or "Little White Lies." Reminiscent of The Big Chill, the film tells the story of a group of friends whose lives are sent into a tailspin after a member of their group is seriously injured in a motorcycle accident. Canet won the Cesar for best directing for his last film, Tell No One, which I highly recommend. We talked about the importance of friendship, his new project, and his favorite burger in New York.
It was both a pleasure and an honor to interview the magnificent Sheila Heti, whose new novel, How Should A Person Be? publishes Tuesday.
The book is highly recommended reading. In fact, it is one of the best books I have read in years. You should definitely read it, and then read the interview at The Awl, which is very long. In it, Sheila and I discuss her novel, along with a variety of topics from friendship to sex to Lena Dunham to Toronto, and much more.
You can learn more about Sheila at her website, www.sheilaheti.net.
Here's a Q&A with Michael Stuhlbarg, who you'll remember from the Coen Brothers' A Serious Man. He's currently starring in Men in Black III and is working on two huge projects, Spielberg's Lincoln and Hitchcock.
