Before You Buy

Before you buy Bob Blaisdell's book on Marvin Mudrick, listen to this short review in the form of a radio interview with reviewer David Kipen, formerly of the San Francisco Chronicle. Kipen had never heard of Mudrick till Bob sent him a copy of the book.

I've read it and would have written about it already but life got a bit busy and crazy. Also another reason is that I have appear in a supporting role in the story ("romantic lead" is the way one friend put it) that Bob tells and for a while I thought that that should keep me from blogging about it. But there's a lot more in there than just the little glimpses you get of me. Perhaps the biggest reason you should look at it is that, being readers (or else why are you hanging around here), you should be glad to read anything that is written from love, so you can be reminded of the best reason to do anything.
