Too Hilariously Real
Roger’s unsparing sense of humor and adept skill with language makes for some breathtaking moments of it’s-funny-because-it’s-true! The rhythm in his pros is entirely delightful and captivating. I hope it’s okay with him that I’m lifting his throwaway delivery of, “May I kill you?” and employing it in my daily professional interactions and blaming him should it lead to any trouble. Having watched Roger on NewsHour years back, it’s a treat hearing his voice again. I look forward to playing this for friends. I had such fun listening to 101, I cannot wait for the next.
Riffing from Roger
May I Kill you is a jazz infused call and response between Roger and his reader/critic/publisher inside which you are treated to the banalities of feedback given in the absence of a genuine reading of the work. His bass line request to kill is countered with shrieks of Arthur the Bat and eye gauging with a sherbet scoop. He is accused of being too touchy and too needy. For my part I hope he continues to share his excess. Smart and fun is a rare combination. Thanks Roger.
May I Kill You: Praise, Praise, More Praise
From Proust to 7-Eleven, Roger Rosenblatt delightfully shuttles the pedestrian and pedantic into a well woven tapestry of the writer's plight. Rosenblatt's elegant and avuncular voice make the podcast a particularly perfect format for his clever word play and dry wit. Loved this!
