NPR’s ‘Fresh Air’ to Feature Erik and His New Book on Monday, May 9

I must say, it is always a pleasure to be interviewed by Terry Gross of NPR’s “Fresh Air.” Frankly, she may at this point know as much about my new book–In the Garden of Beasts–as I do. Gad, maybe more! She asks the smartest things, and doesn’t let you off the hook with puffball questions. She wants muscle and bone. From time to time I’d be furiously flipping pages looking for the right reference, in order to be able to answer a question accurately and not sound like an idiot–which is my normal inclination. But believe me, it’s so nice to be asked original questions.

Anyway, that’ll air on Monday, May 9.
