The Book Show #1431 - Jane Smiley

Book Cover - Early Warning by Jane Smiley

  Novelist Jane Smiley is in the middle of her Last Hundred Years trilogy about the Langdon family.

While last year’s Some Luck followed the Langdon family through the depression, her new novel, Early Warning, tells their story as the country moves into the Cold War, through the social and sexual revolutions of the 1960s and ’70s and into the materialism of the ’80s.

This episode previously aired as The Book Show episode #1407.

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets. Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady. And yes, he reads every single book.
