**NOTE** For our podcast listeners, the LARB Radio Hour can now be downloaded as a separate podcast. The LARB Radio Hour will no longer appear on the LA Review of Books podcast.

This week we present the second half of our interview with Michael Silverblatt, the host of KCRW’s nationally syndicated literary show Bookworm. Silverblatt explains his 100-page rule for reading, how old-school writers shared a kind of magician’s code, and how he relates his Jewish grandmother to the novels of Samuel Beckett.

Featuring Tom Lutz, Laurie Winer, and Seth Greenland. Produced by Jerry Gorin.
