Jane Hutcheon The Great Interviews

Kind words

She is as good as Michael Parkinson at his best. The Green Guide, The Age, March 2014

Hutcheon’s urbane, understated control is masterly. Sydney Morning Herald May 2014

Jane Hutcheon deserves credit as a skilful interviewer. She is able to gently prod her subject in a certain direction, while never inserting herself too obtrusively. Sydney Morning Herald January 2020

Warm, curious and relaxed, Jane Hutcheon proves an ideal facilitator. Limelight magazine, January 2020

I think the interview with you is the best I have ever done – and it’s because of your questions and sensitivity. Truly. Amy Tan, author The Joy Luck Club

There’s a gentle artistry to Hutcheon’s interview invisibility, far more evident in person than through the screen…the way her carefully unjudging eyes rarely leave your face… The Saturday Paper, February 2017
