Anyone Who’s Anyone: The Astonishing Celebrity Interviews, 1987-2017
George Wayne has been interviewing celebrities for over thirty years. His interviewing technique is a freewheeling, no-holds-barred way of getting all kinds of personal information from these famous people. It seems that nothing is off-limits. The interviews really run the gamut from old-time comedians such as Milton Berle and Joan Rivers to fashion icons such as Mr. Blackwell and Prince Federico Pignatelli Della Leonessa, from political figures such as Ivanka Trump to journalists such as Bob Colacello and Geraldo Rivera as well as supermodels, architects, award-winning actors and actresses, magicians, musicians, and more. Some of these interviews are thirty years old and are with people long dead, so they may not be very interesting or relevant to some readers, but many are quite recent and with contemporary figures. There really is something in here for everyone. The collection has an introduction by Graydon Carter, a long-time friend of George Wayne, and each interview has a mini-introduction, so if readers are not familiar with any interviewee, they can have context. This is a fun read and easy to read in small chunks, as each interview stands on its own.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
