Monday 28 April 2008: Tobias Woff/David Ambrose
On 28 April I talked with novelist, memoirist and short story writer Tobias Wolff about his most recent book Our Story Begins: Selected and New Stories (Knopf). Wolff will appear in conversation with Pam Houston at 7:30 PM on Thursday 8 May at the Crest Theater in Sacramento as part of the California Lectures series. The interview was followed by a recording of novelist and short story writer T C Boyle reading Wolff's story Bullet in the Brain. The reading was part of a New Yorker series in which some of the magazine's writers pick their favorites from stories other writers have published there. To hear the full recording, including a discussion of Bullet in the Brain by Boyle and New Yorker fiction editor Deborah Treisman, click here.

I then talked with English author David Ambrose about his first novel The Man Who Turned Into Himself, which has just been republished in paperback by Picador.
