"A significant new scholarly resource, the interviews add up to a collective diagetical gloss on Derrida's major texts. The volume will be indispensable to any student and scholar of literature for whom deconstruction is important, whether as an inspiration and model or as a bete noire." - Henry Sussman, SUNY, Buffalo "Here Derrida himself provides a guide and commentary to his work... This collection is particularly welcome because Derrida's work in the past 20 years has taken off in a variety of new directions that have often left critics puzzled." - Choice
