Sally Menke Interview

Elvis Mitchel has posted a thoughtful, sensitive interview with editor Sally Menke this week for his LA-based show “The Treatment.” Elvis is something of an LA institution, operating out of KCRW. His interviews are consistently penetrating, and this one is no different. Having helped run the Editors Guild Magazine for four years, I can tell you that it’s not an easy thing to interview editors with respect and without resorting to a host of cliches. This one does both.

You can listen on line at this link or via itunes as a podcast. It’s tight–just 30 minutes long. But it offers something more sensitive than you might expect, and gives you a sense of what made Menke such a special person.

As many of you know, Sally spent much of her working life cutting Quentin Tarantino’s pictures. She died tragically last year, while hiking in Griffith Park.
