I was out of town on 11 May so KVMR played a program I recorded last week. First came an interview with journalist and author Tony Horwitz about his book A Voyage Long and Strange: Rediscovering the New World, which has just come out in paperback from Picador. I then played the beginning of a talk which Douglas Adams, who was born on 11 May 1952 (this should be a National if not a Galactic holiday), gave at the University of California in Santa Barbara a few months before his sudden death. To see the entire talk, click here.

I talked with Tony Horwitz' wife Geraldine Brooks about her novel People of the Book on 4 February 2008.
