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.

Please talk less Michael!
I prefer to hear more from the authors and less of Michael’s opinions and personal stories. I thought this show was about books and their authors.

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.
