I'm not sure if it's the lack of music or the horrid nature of talk radio that annoys me more. I'll have to try out total silence.

BTW thanks for visiting my site.


In the year following my father's death, during which I didn't listen to music, whenever I was in the car I renewed my interest in talk radio (I became a fan during the OJ Simpson trial, which I couldn't afford to watch on TV because I knew I'd become addicted and would never make the deadline for the legal thriller I was writing). That's when I started listening to Dr. Laura--was fascinated, appalled, amazed...and wrote Dead Air, which deals with a fictional radio talk show host who enrages a caller and...Well, I can't reveal any more.


The lack of music is what gets to me more than anything else. I spend a lot of time in the car thinking now instead of having music blast my thoughts out the window.


I wholeheartedly agree with Neil -- perfectly written, capturing what many of us think about the Nine Days.

And to think that your fictional character can be your spokeswoman...? Wow, you can almost get away with saying just about anything you're thinking...through Molly, of course!


Very well written, very real. This is what I appreciate about your books, the way the Jewish themes are written about in a genuine, natural, and well explained way. Maybe part of good writing is putting the right amount of yourself into it.
