In July of 2005, shortly before the publication of Half-Blood Prince, J.K. Rowling agreed to a two-hour conversation with a callow, inexperienced and thoroughly starstruck journalist named Lev Grossman. The interview turned into a Time magazine profile (the infamous badness of which the journalist deeply regrets). But that profile only made use of a few scattered quotes from the conversation, and the full transcript of the interview, which runs to 12,000 words, has never been published anywhere, and probably never will be. In this talk -- the contents of which must never be repeated anywhere, on pain of agonizing death -- Grossman will share the highlights, and a few of the lowlights, with you.
