Monday, March 17 - Judith Freeman Encore

Garrison Keillor calls rebroadcasts of previous programs "encore shows" and my terrific engineers Matt and Stan call them "evergreen." As it happens, the station's transmitter had been down for about four days when this early episode of "Bib" aired, and only some of the KPFK listenership heard the show. So, here it is again, my interview, which aired the first time on January 21, with Judith Freeman, author of The Long Embrace: Raymond Chandler and the Woman He Loved. “This elegant, stirring book plumbs a great mystery, one hidden, from even Chandler’s many devoted readers, in plain sight. Freeman’s book is a meditation on marriage, a persuasive biographical and literary study, and, best of all, one of those rare books, like Nicholson Baker’s U and I or Geoff Dyer’s Out of Sheer Rage, where one writer’s study of another takes the form of a confessional fugue on the writing act itself.” - Jonathan Lethem
