Book Talk features discussions with up and coming authors who have recently published new work. 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 by 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 in, then check out new episodes of Book Talk every Thursday with host Kory French.
