Wednesday, August 7 - Alan Cheuse

Tonight on Bibliocracy, 8 PM on KPFK 90.7 FM in Southern CaliforniaALAN CHEUSE.  My guest tonight is a novelist, short story writer, essayist, anthologist and reviewer of books.  Most recently he is author of the novels Song of Slaves in the Desert and  Paradise, or Eat Your Face.  He’s also one of the voices on the radio to whom millions listen for advice, critiques, generous appraisals, recommendations of books.  Alan Cheuse has presented his short – famously, two minutes-long -  incisive, necessary book reviews on National Public Radio for decades, becoming a part of the history of thoughtful public broadcasting, and establishing the taste and direction and tone of that network by way of “All Things Considered,” where his book reviews are heard weekly.  He’s a public radio and books hero --- a two-fer! ---  and it was my good luck to chat with him earlier this summer about radio, and his career as a writer, reader and reviewer.  Thanks for listening.
