Bookworm

25 02 2010

If you are a big fan of books, like myself, I suggest you check out KCRW’s “Bookworm,” hosted by Michael Silverblatt. This interview with BOMB does a great job of explaining the show and gives insight into Silverblatt’s intentions as a host. Silverblatt always does very close readings of his guest authors’ bodies of work, and he conducts the interview as a natural conversation rather than a prepared set of questions, albeit a conversation guided by, in Silverblatt, a very astute host. Some of my favorite interviews are those he did with David Foster Wallace, which are collected here, and then his interview here with David Markson, author of Wittgenstein’s Mistress, amongst others.
