This is a wonderful interview, and I give two thumbs down to sourpuss Scott who complains that he has no interest in Kirsten Berg. I too came to the interview with an interest in David Mitchell, but I was reminded that one of the things I love about his books is precisely his seemingly endless curiosity about the world, its many people and their stories. Here I learned a lot about Mitchell and a bit about a fellow book lover at Powells. What possible complaint could I make?

Aren't most interviews a give-and-take between the interviewer and the subject? I didn't think this was one-sided at all. Delightful interview. I've only read "Black Swan Green," but I loved it!

What a delightful interview! It sounds relaxed yet professional. I'm a big David Mitchell fan, and I want to thank Kirsten for doing such a fantastic job! Yay, Powells!

I was pleased to see an interview with David Mitchell. Too bad the interview was actually more about the interviewer. This may come as a surprise but I really have no interest whatsoever in Kirsten Berg.

I just read Kirsten Berg's interview with David Mitchell, couldn't stop! It was so delightful and fresh-sounding, I felt as though I were seated at the table with them. Mitchell sounds like the next "undiscovered" treasure I will need to place on my chairside table. Thanks to all of you for introducing this un-assuming and original voice to me. May he continue to excite both his readers and himself.
