It’s a busy morning, so just a quick note that today I’ll be on Minnesota Public Radio’s show “Midmorning,” discussing books with Janice Harayda, proprietor of the fine blog One-Minute Book Reviews. The theme is “literary escapes,” and to my great relief I’ve been told that the conversation needn’t stick to escapist fiction. Still, I’ll try to avoid talking about Every Man Dies Alone or something. It’s a call-in show, so you can make your own recommendations on-air, and it’ll be available online later, so you can be among the many people who tell me I talk too fast. I’ll try to update this post later with a list of books that were discussed and recommended.
