Today’s program mixes some Christmas fun into a dreadful political season.
I often recommend non-fiction books and interview lots of authors of such works. But outside of thrillers –Vince Flynn, Daniel Silva, etc– and the occasional mystery writer like C.J. Box, I steer clear of novelists because it is hard to discuss a novel without giving away too much of the story. My on air pals like these three have long practice with me and we know how to avoid that cliff.
But I will give it a whirl today with a new guest, Douglas Brunt, about his Ghosts of Manhattan because the protrait the book draws of Wall Street finance is troubling but very entertaining, and the key question is whether it survived the crash.
