Abstract
In an interview conducted on March 8th, 1979, Hortense Calisher recounts the beginning of her career as an author with the short story series In the Absence of Angels. Calisher discusses the autobiographical influence on her fiction and the fear of being pigeonholed as a regional or feminist writer. Calisher describes the bias that some critics have when reviewing fiction due to their own personal vendetta, specifically with her 1969 novel The New Yorkers. Finally, Calisher describes an upcoming novel depicting her time spent in Iran.
