Recently I caught up with a backlog of Radio Open Source podcasts where Chris Lydon interviewed authors of recently published fiction:
- Marlon James, The Book of Night Women
- Aleksandar Hemon, Love and Other Obstacles
- Reif Larsen, The Selected Works of T. S. Spivet
- Paul Harding, Tinkers
I knew Hemon from Nowhere Man, and I have his The Lazarus Project on deck on my bedside table, but I didn't know the others. Their wonderful conversations with Chris Lydon convinced me that I need their books. Tinkers is already on deck.
indeed ...I probably would not have considered these books - particularly Reif Larsen's .. without Chis Lydon's show.
I'm very happy that it managed to find a new home and survive!
