Peres Featured on Amazon’s First ‘Kindle Single Interview Series

Peres is arguably the world’s most interviewed president. At age 89, he works like a youngster and holds an official record for saying “peace.” Today, he is Amazon’s Kindle Single’s first interviewee.

President Shimon Peres has the new distinction of being the first person to be featured on Amazon’s Kindle Single interview series that will feature world leaders.

Thursday’s debut is featured under the title “The Optimist,” a fitting description for a man who has preached peace agreements, such as the Oslo Accord, even if they cause war.

He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994, sharing it with Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and with arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat, who exploited world Anti-Zionism to wear the mantle of peace by keeping a pistol by his hip.

Peres is 89 years old although most of the world considers him  to be 90 because of pre-birthday celebrations that began two months before his Gregorian calendar birthday on August 2. He will be 90 on the Hebrew calendar this coming Shabbat.

The interview that is available on Kindle Singles was carried out by David Samuels, in association with the online  Tablet Magazine. Samuels is a contributing editor at Harper’s and a longtime contributor to The New Yorker and The Atlantic.

“In September of 1962, novelist Alex Haley’s conversation with Miles Davis launched the Playboy Interview, and pioneered the idea of a long-form, extended dialogue with the great personalities of our time,” said David Blum, editor of Kindle Singles. “We hope to carry forward that tradition, and use the unlimited digital space to engage great artists and thinkers in conversation with skilled writers and interviewers.”

Kindle Singles was launched in 2011, and the interviews with world leaders is a new platform for the company.
