Titlepage Arrives!

Today marks the debut of a project I've been working on for a while now -- Titlepage, an online talk show about books. I think our first episode turned out really, really well. It features Richard Price (in addition to his terrific novels, he's also written for The Wire, the world's best TV show), Susan Choi, Colin Harrison, and Charles Bock. All four guests were ideal for the format -- talkative, insightful, and engaged with each other.

I'm also blogging on the site along with Daniel Menaker, the show's host. The blog is called Loud, Please, and you can find it here. This will not dilute my work at ASWOBA, since Titlepage does not (as of yet) share my intense interest in mascots, among other things.

So, if you have time today, please visit the site. We need all the enthusiastic fans we can get.

Congratulations! It already looks fantastic, and I'm quite impressed at the authors you guys were already able to get for your first show. Great work!

Phenomenal. I can't wait to see the future episodes as well. I think you may have the beginnings of a great, expansive community.

Kudos on an auspicious launch! Very exciting indeed. Dan seemed very natural in his role as host and exerted just the right amount of control, direction and synthesis while letting the authors do most of the talking. Things got especially interesting as the guests loosened up and started to have exchanges with one another toward the end.... Great stuff. Looking forward to the next episode already.
