I became aware of Marcel Proust, French novelist and critic, in an indirect way when I started watching "Inside the Actors Studio". At the end of each show, James Lipton questions the guest with an adapted version of the Proust Questionairre, which french television host Bernard Pivot made famous. The story of how the Proust Q & A came about is a lengthy one, but it originated in 1885, and developed into a great template for interviewing. The Proust Questionairre will be a regular feature on my blog, and some of my favorite bloggers will be participating! Stay tuned!
