timely topics for contemporary listeners
Page by Page hits contemporary topics right in the sweet spot. The host continues finding great authors and posing the right questions during interviews to inform and subsequently make you hungry to understand the rest of the novel, history of the author, or ethos of a movement. The post-interview poetry, essays and music are all well-placed and thoughtful. This show just flows.
Page by Page reminds me that, even in the time of on-line everything, contemporary authors are the true visionaries; their books, novels, and essays are the primary documents of our time and I would all do well to be more well versed in them. Bummer I don't live in Aspen and can't listen to them live on air!
have really enjoyed this show so far - great addition. i don't even live in the aspen area but have been tuning in each week from california to listen to these interviews. keep em' coming!
If you are interested in the future of books, check this out. Good host. Eclectic guests. Interesting questions.
