New Burglar book by Lawrence Block
« on: October 30, 2013, 09:11:03 am »
There's a new Bernie Rhodenbarr book due out in December (Hurray!).

Last night on the Craig Ferguson show, Lawrence Block said he's self-publishing his new book. He says he had retired after his last book, but decided to try writing another.

    Never read any of his books (not really my genre) but did enjoy the interview. (Late Late Show is on my regular DVR schedule. :) )

    It may be my limited interest/experience in chat shows, but it appears that Ferguson has more authors on his show than the other hosts do. He appears to have actually read the books, also.

    Yep. He may be one of the most literate high school drop-outs ever (and more literate than most college grads). :) His show is mostly fun and fluff, but every once in a while it gets deeper. If you can find a video of his Peabody Award-winning interview of Desmond Tutu, it's worth a look.
