KCRW’s Bookworm

michael silverblattIf you’ve never listened to the public radio program Bookworm, run out of KCRW in Santa Monica and hosted by the brilliant and ethereally cerebral Michael Silverblatt, you’re in for a treat. For over 20 years, Bookworm has been recording intelligent, serious interviews with creative writers of all kinds, mostly fiction writers and poets, and the discussions are always fascinating. Talk usually turns quickly to craft and the creative process, and if you’re writer you’ll come away inspired and enlightened. Plus, it’s always fun to hear how any given writer will react when confronted with Michael Silverblatt’s deep-drilling, confoundingly well-articulated, sweeping encapsulations of their work. The archive is searchable, and just about everyone’s here. Maybe someday, you!
