On this week’s show, Tom, Laurie, and Seth interview Michael Silverblatt, the host of Bookworm, a nationally syndicated radio show featuring interviews with the world’s best writers of literary fiction and poetry. Silverblatt talks about conceiving a show where “the author finally talks to someone who has read their work,” and talks about his rigorous interviewing style and process, shares stories about some of his favorite guests — like David Foster Wallace and Joy Williams — and also talks about his childhood and his early love of musicals.
Featuring Tom Lutz, Laurie Winer, and Seth Greenland. Produced by Jerry Gorin.
Part II is available here.
