Titlepage 3.0

I'm busier than I've been in a long time around here, so this will be today's only post. Luckily, it's something good -- the third episode of Titlepage. It just went up this morning, and it features four nonfiction authors on their new books -- David Hajdu, who writes about the censorship of comics in the 1940s and 50s; Mary Roach, whose smart, funny latest is about sexual research; Louis Masur, who discusses an iconic image of racial violence from the 1970s; and David Gilmour, who allowed his son to drop out of high school if he would watch three movies a week with his dad.

I loved our first two shows, but this might be our best episode yet -- just because, like anyone else embarking on a new project, we're learning. I hope you enjoy it:

Speaking of Titlepage, I just read a NY Times article about literary compatibility in relationships and Sloane Crosley from the second episode of Titlepage was quoted. It reads:

Sloane Crosley, a publicist at Vintage/Anchor Books and the author of “I Was Told There’d Be Cake,” essays about single life in New York, put it this way: “If you’re a person who loves Alice Munro and you’re going out with someone whose favorite book is ‘The Da Vinci Code,’ perhaps the flags of incompatibility were there prior to the big reveal.”
