Ten random things: November 25

Ten writers interviewed on the NPR talk show The Diane Rehm Show:

  1. Nuala O'Faolain (Almost There)
  2. David Maraniss (They Marched Into Sunlight)
  3. Lewis Libby (The Apprentice)
  4. Donald Bogle (Primetime Blues)
  5. Ellen Langer (On Becoming an Artist)
  6. Laura Hillenbrand (Seabiscuit: An American Legend)
  7. Ted Kooser (U.S. Poet Laureate)
  8. Arianna Huffington (Fanatics and Fools)
  9. Thomas Moore (The Soul's Religion)
  10. Rosemary Dew (No Backup)

At least once a week, I have customers coming in looking for books that were featured on a recent episode.) If your local NPR affiliate doesn't carry it, you can listen to it live (10 A.M. to noon ET) at, or listen to archived shows going back to 2002 at
