EDIT
Michael Krasny: A Memoir of Talk Radio
AIRED:
Michael Krasny discusses his new book Off Mike: A Memoir of Talk Radio and Literary LifeKQED's Michael Krasny, host of "Forum", is one of the country's leading interviewers of literary luminaries, a maestro for educated listeners who prefer their discourse high and civil. He is a writer's interviewer. But it didn't start out that way. In "Off Mike", Krasny, host of one of public radio's most popular and intellectually compelling programs, talks of his strong desire to become a novelist in the footsteps of Bellow and Philip Roth, and then discovering his real talent as a commentator "a deft ability to draw others out as an interlocutor. In a mix of memoir and reportage, Krasny takes us inside his world "his coming of age during the heady 1960s, to the vivid description of his journey from a student of literature to a struggling novelist to an educator and "somewhat accidentally "a radio host. - Cody's Booksmoreless
