Book Nook: The Painting and the City by Robert Freeman Wexler

Vick Mickunas' 2021 interview with Robert Freeman Wexler

Robert Freeman Wexler returned to the program following a long hiatus. His last appearance was 18 years ago. His novel "The Painting and the City" has just been reissued. The original release of this book was quite limited and it has been out of print for many years so it was good to reconnect with the author to find out the story behind the decision to reissue his hauntingly surreal novel.

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

Vick Mickunas introduced the Book Nook author interview program for WYSO in 1994. Over the years he has produced more than 1500 interviews with writers, musicians, poets, politicians, and celebrities. Listen to the Book Nook with Vick Mickunas for intimate conversations about books with the writers who create them. Vick Mickunas reviews books for the Dayton Daily News and the Springfield News Sun.
