Spectacular Sontag

Such a great episode and engaging conversation with Susan Sontag’s biographer. It came as no surprise to learn how very fond 🥰 Susan was of Michael Silverblatt. I am too!! I’m a dear future friend Michael has yet to meet. LOL. Thank you for sharing your gifts, knowledge and insights, Michael. I’m mad about you, and Brad Listi and his Otherppl podcast— you’re my literary podcaster crushes. 💖📚

One of my favorite podcasts

Michael Silverblatt is a gift to all bookworms. He loves to read and talk about his experience reading, feeling, and thinking about books. His questions aren’t so much questions as rolling, rambling invitations for conversation with guests. Plus that voice. Oh that voice.

If you want more than best sellers to read…

Many of the books that Silverblatt reviews and authors that he interviews have led to my reading the book or everything the author had published!
If you enjoy serious fiction, this podcast will help you to go beyond the most popular choices and discover quirky, not so ordinary fiction.
