Editorial Reviews

Nan Goldberg
The brief interviews here, conducted over the past decade or so by various journalists for National Public Radio, include talks with Anne LaMott, Norman MacLean, Joan Didion, John McPhee, Walter Mosley, Roddy Doyle, Sharon Olds and May Sarton. The MacLean, Sarton and Mosley interviews are interesting, and Didion�s voice, manner and thoughtful answers are downright fascinating, but it�s true often enough that the experience of listening to this cassette isn�t, on the whole, worthwhile. It�s odd that NPR, which is famous for its insightful and intelligent content, would represent itself so poorly.
