The Art of the Interview & Knowing Your Subject featuring Larry Grobel


Larry Grobel has been called by Playboy, “The interviewers’ interviewer,” by Joyce Carol Oats, “The Mozart of interviewers” and by J.P. Donleavy, “The most intelligent interviewer in the United States.”

Larry has written for The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Playboy and many more magazines and newspapers. He’s published 29 books including biographies, fiction and non-fiction. He’s been yelled at by Di Niro, scolded by Patty Hearst, almost thrown out of a car by Bobby Knight. He’s spent two weeks in Tahiti with Brando, gone toe to toe with Barbra Streisand, flown Kurt Russell’s plane and listened to Dolly Parton tap out her idea for “9-5” with her fingernails. Larry’s stories are vast and epic.
