If you’re an avid bookie, you probably read The New York Times Book Review, which comes tucked inside the Sunday paper. For some time now Pamela Paul, the NYTBR’s editor, has been creating podcast interviews and other book news in a podcast. This month, we’re highlighting not one but several we think you’ll enjoy listening to.
The first is an interview with a popular crime thriller author, LA’s own Michael Connolly, author of the fabulous Harry Bosch and Lincoln Lawyer tales, discussing his most recent novel, The Crossing.
It’s followed by Alexandra Alter’s in-depth exploration about how Stephen King came up with the ideas to write the short stories in his latest collection, The Bazaar of Bad Dreams.
A review of Adam Sisman’s biography of the king of spy novelists, John Le Carre, author of The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, and
A memoir by Frederick Forsyth, author of The Day of the Jackal with the, ah, intriguing title, The Outsider: My Life in Intrigue.
Wow, that’s a lot of great listening packed into just 41 minutes of podcast! This episode was first broadcast November 1, 2015, and is brought to you in its entirety with the permission and courtesy of The New York Times Book Review. If you like these, we’ll bring you more.
