Customer Reviews


A few weeks ago, I finished reading Susan Orlean’s The Library Book, so surveying the episodes of KCRW “Bookworm,” I was eager to hear what Orlean had to say about the process and content of her great read. I came away wanting more from Orlean, which means more interview method from Silverblatt and less of his talk about the book. At one point, Silverblatt cut Orlean off mid-sentence in order to offer his own ideas? The topic was feminism in the world of librarians —surely Orlean had important things to say.

An interviewer is most effective using a voice and manner that does not interrupt the presence of the one interviewed, or the listener. The cadence of Silverblatt's voice made me impatient instead of at ease.

Michael is so on-point, so generous with his guests - he's the perfect reader and he's turned me onto some of my absolute favorite writers and given insight into their work.
