Radio Hour: Günter Grass, Shame Reading, & Laurie's Apology

April 23, 2015   •   By LARB AV

Günter Grass’ recent death had us wondering whether we can read authors whose personal lives offend us, considering Grass’ history as a member of the Waffen-SS during WWII. We also discuss which authors or books we’re ashamed of enjoying, and Laurie apologizes for a word she used on last week’s show. 

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


LARB Radio Hour airs every Wednesday at 8 p.m. on KPFK 90.7 Los Angeles.
