Monday, April 27 - James D. Houston (1933-2009)
Monday at noon a rebroadcast celebrating the life and work of a writer, mentor and friend: James D. Houston. Last May I interviewed Jim Houston on the occasion of Heyday Books' publication of a collection of his short stories and essays, Where Light Takes its Color From the Sea. Listen again, and be impressed again. Jim was one of the best "men in my life," and one of our best writers, teachers, human beings. Visit Jim's official website: http://www.jamesdhouston.com/about_author.html. Read Elaine Woo's generous and thoughtful obituary in the LA Times: http://www.latimes.com/news/obituaries/la-me-james-houston18-2009apr18,0,2803256.story and the NY Times obit: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/18/books/18houston.html?_r=1
All best wishes and love to Jeannie Wakatsuki Houston. Peace.
