Book Nook: My Wife Said You May Want To Marry Me, by Jason B. Rosenthal


In 2002 I interviewed Amy Krouse Rosenthal. She died in 2017. I just interviewed her husband Jason for his memoir "My Wife Said You May Want To Marry Me" and it was a powerful experience. During the interview I surprised him by playing a snippet from my interview with Amy. (my interview with Amy is in our Book Nook archive of podcasts).

Jason experienced a great loss and this is his story of love, life, the end of a life, and what came afterward.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library,  Clark County Public LibraryDayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
