Alafair Burke on her latest mystery, "212"

Host Ed Goldberg speaks with writer Alistair Burke about her third white-knuckle thriller "212." NYPD Detective Ellie Hatcher and her partner, J.J. Rogan are investigating the murder of NYU student Megan Gunther, who's the target of threatening posts on a college gossip Web site. The death of bodyguard Robert Robo Mancini, whose bullet-ridden corpse turns up in a swanky new building, the 212, built by Sam Sparks, the high-powered Manhattan real-estate developer Robo worked for, ups the ante. When Sam makes it clear that the police won't have access to any company records, Ellie's interest is piqued. As she and J.J. try to piece together Megan's life, they discover a link between the student and a recently murdered real estate agent.

"Enlightened Sexism: The Seductive Message that Feminism's Work Is Done."

Host Kathleen Stephenson speaks with Susan Douglas about her new book, "Enlightened Sexism: The Seductive Message that Feminism's Work Is Done." Douglas exposes popular images of women in the media as mere fantasies of female power, assuring women and girls that the battle for equality has been won, so there’s nothing wrong with resurrecting sexist stereotypes—all in good fun, of course. She shows that these portrayals not only distract us from the real-world challenges facing women today but also drive a wedge between baby-boom women and their “millennial” daughters.

Annie Barrows, co-author of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Pie Society

Host Ed Goldberg speaks with Annie Barrows, co-author of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Pie Society, a novel of love and intrigue on an island in the English Channel in 1946.

Mary Ann Shaffer became interested in Guernsey while visiting London in 1976. On a whim, she decided to fly to Guernsey but became stranded there when a thick fog descended and all boats and planes were forbidden to leave the island. As she waited for the fog to lift, warming herself by the heat of the hand-dryer in the men's restroom, she read all the books in the Guernsey airport bookstore, including Jersey under the Jack-Boot. Thus began her fascination with the German Occupation of the Channel Islands.

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.
