Interviews with Richard Wirick about "Kicking In" and Robert Dugoni about "Bodily Harm,"

A special hour-long Between the Covers featuring interviews with two great authors. Host Ed Goldberg speaks with Richard Wirick, author of "Kicking In," a collection of short storeis with a dark feeling. Narcotic euphoria meets the demands of everyday life in Richard Wirick’s brilliant new collection of interlocking stories. Whether his tales are depicting a Valium-fogged lawyer representing a car painter who cooked a client in his kiln or revealing a Gulf War orderly’s drift in and out of morphine dreams during an aerial Medevac surgery, Wirick’s stories are rich with the social contexts in which sedation’s acolytes emerge, come forward to flourish, and then often violently explode or fade away.

Comments

Timber Beasts

I've read the book twice and rather hoped to hear the program that the author spoke on the book. But that page was not available on your site. Anyway, I loved the book. I thought it was an exciting dose of history. Stoner brought the Portland of  1900 to life. There was intrigue that kept my interest throughout the book.
