Book Talk is a Sunday morning talk radio program that features discussions with up and coming authors who have recently published new work. The interviews are broken up by tracks off a newly released album of the same week. Topics range from 1960s Jimi Hendrix roadie biographies to modern political commentary to crime-fiction from a recovered heroin addict. What is never featured is the boring or mundane. If the last thing you read was featured on Oprah's Book Club, or you are a fan of Eat, Pray, Love, then this show isn't for you. However, if you like Henry Miller and Tom Waits' Nighthawks at the Diner is what you like to soak your mind, then tune in to Book Talk every week with host Kory French.
