Uncommon Writers (University of Iowa Press) - E. M. Cioran - A keen stylist and rigorous thinker, concerned . In my opinion, a book should be written without thinking of others. You shouldn't write for anyone, only for yourself. And one should never write a book just to write a book. Cioran - A keen stylist and rigorous thinker, concerned with the most fundamental issues of being, E. Cioran has often been compared with such writers as Beckett and Borges. Though he might have been better known had he written fiction or plays rather than his very particular essays and aphorisms, Cioran's books reach across great distances: those within the self as well as those between people. Cioran insists that he's not a writer; his fifteen.

Reviews about Writing at Risk: Interviews in Paris With Uncommon Writers (4):
WEISS: "Years now without coffee, without alcohol, without tobacco", you wrote. Was it because of your health?

CIORAN: Yes, health. I had to choose. I was drinking coffee all the time. I'd drink 7 cups of coffee in the morning. It was one or the other. But tobacco was the most difficult. I was a big smoker. It took me 5 years to quit smoking. And I was absolutely desperate each time I tried. I'd cry. I'd say "I'm the vilest of men". It was an extraordinary struggle. In the middle of the night I'd throw the cigarettes out the window. First thing in the morning I'd go buy some more. It was a comedy that lasted 5 years. When I stopped smoking, I felt like I'd lost my soul. I made the decision. It was a question of honor. "Even if I don't write another line, I'm going to stop." Tobacco was absolutely tied up with my life. I couldn't make a phone call without a cigarette. I couldn't answer a letter. I couldn't look at a landscape without it.

WEISS: You felt better afterward, I hope.

CIORAN: Yes. When I'm depressed, I tell myself: "You did succeed in conquering tobacco". It was a struggle to the death. And that's always made me think of a story Dostoyevsky speaks about. In Siberia there was an anarchist at the time who was sentenced to 18 years in prison. And one day they cut off his tobacco. Right away he gave a declaration that he was renouncing all his ideas and everything at the feet of the tsar. When I read that in my youth, I hadn't understood it. And I remember where I smoked my last cigarette, about 14 years ago. It was near Barcelona. It was 7 in the morning. It was cold, the end of September. And there was a foolish German who dove into the water and started swimming. I said: "If this German can do that at his age, I'm going to show that I can too". So I went in like that and I had the flu that night.

The Eugene Ionescu interview was semi-interesting. And the other interviewees didn't interest me at all.
Weiss undertook these interviews of famous writers between the years of 1980 and 1987 to gather information for newspaper profiles of writers. Later, he began to publish the full interviews in literary journals. The writers are loosely connected in that they all spent a great deal of their adult lives in the city of Paris. Also, they were all taking risks in their writing by either breaking from or reformulating their literary traditions. There is, however, a deeper similarity between the pieces. In the introduction, Weiss reveals that he began to see a common theme in these interviews, that the discussions kept returning to "certain cultural preoccupations" that he had not always planned to talk about. Eventually, Weiss collected nine of these interviews together and published them under the title Writing at Risk. Weiss begins each chapter with a brief profile of the subject and a few comments on the subject's impact on the literary world and his personality. For example, Carlos Fuentes "is above all a man of conscience" and Eugene Ionesco is "one of the leading dramatists in the `theater of the absurd'." In these one to two page profiles, the interviewer outlines the writer's literary works, his political influence if any, his occasion to live in Paris, and the circumstances of the interview. Also, Weiss is careful to note the month and year of each interview knowing that the information garnered from the conversations is only understandable within it's political and historical context.
The conversations are recorded in a tradition interview style with the interviewer's questions written after his initials and a colon and the subject's responses after his initials and a colon. This, however, is as close to tradition as Weiss gets and his innovation works well. For the most
If you are interested in these writers, exile, or literature of the period, then you should enjoy this book. It is unique as a collection of interviews. One of the most important books in my collection with regard to my own work on the history of ideas and the intersection of thinking/writing.
Weiss is a sensitive, erudite interviewer who knows when to let an interview stray into unplanned territory. These interviews are great because of the minds meeting in them. Writers interviewed include:

E.M. Cioran
Julio Cortázar
Brion Gysin
Eugène Ionesco
Carlos Fuentes
Jean-Claude Carrière
Milan Kundera
Nathalie Sarraute
Edmond Jabès
