"Vanity Fair's Proust Questionnaire" brings together the responses of 100 of the most vibrant personalities of our time, from Bette Midler and Lauren Bacall to Salman Rushdie and Norman Mailer, from Martin Scorsese and Shirley MacLaine to Aretha Franklin and Eric Clapton. Hilarious, candid and endlessly fascinating, this is a must-have collection for all connoisseurs of popular culture.
Graydon Carter is the editor of "Vanity Fair."Robert Risko, a "Vanity Fair "contributor, is one of the most renowned celebrity caricaturists working today.
