Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This rich collection of 85 interviews conducted by Stamberg ( Every Night at Five ) for National Public Radio's news show, All Things Considered , is a browser's delight. From 1971 to 1991, Stamberg held on-air conversations with artists, politicians, activists and others in the public eye. Here, the talks are organized by year, and each begins with an introduction--some of which occasionally run too long. Stamberg's easygoing manner is deceptive; her finely honed style soon disarms her subjects into opening up (with the exception of Nancy Reagan, whose glacial veneer even Stamberg failed to pierce). Of particular interest are the interviews with John Ehrlichman, jazz great Dave Brubeck, Rosa Parks, and Stamberg's own favorite interview--her lengthy 1977 conversation with writer Joan Didion about her work.
