Editorial: Poetical interviews

The Guardian's latest series of giveaway booklets has generally been excellent. The transcript of Brill Grundy's encounter with the Sex Pistols was priceless - you literally could not script dialogue that funny.

The best of the series so far has been the Marilyn Monroe conversation, although 'conversation' is not the right word. It is a stream of consciousness, acutely insightful on human nature and beyond, and should put to bed the idea that she was a mere ditz with a wiggle.

And this line on the spread of fame, as highlighted by Joyce Carol Oates in her foreword, shows why:

You're always running into people's unconscious.
