Bono and Alfredo Barraza.

Question: Whom would you like to interview, and what would you ask?

John Harbison: I can think of a couple people who are sort of part of my world, but not exactly. That’s an interesting question because a couple of those people I already did talk to. I think I’d like to interview this rock star, Bono. I’m interested that he still functions as a musician, but has this idea of turning his global access into some kind of an influential thing. It fascinates me that he wants to do that. I guess for a very different reason, I’d like to interview my favorite soccer player, Alfredo Barraza. He’s been retired for about 10 years.
