9780374709761_p0_v2_s260x420.JPG

Wayne Koestenbaum writes widely and he thinks deeply. This latest collection of essays takes readers to some unexpected places. A random sampling of some of his essay titles from this collection might give you a sense of some of the areas that he explores here: "Heidegger's Mistress," "Susan Sontag, Cosmophage," "Privacy in the Films of Lana Turner," "Cary Grant Nude," and "Debbie Harry at the Supermarket."

Koestenbaum's insights can range from scintillating to provocative. Fortunately he's also quite entertaining. Please listen to this interview and see you if you don't agree.
