Then, Bill Roorbach’s latest mystery novel, Life Among Giants, is filled with contemporary cynicism, opulence, and what one critic calls a “Gatsbyesque portrayal of celebrity.” Roorbach has published in Harper’s, the Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times Magazine, and he’s the author of eight books. Bob and Roorbach discuss the book and his career. [Broadcast Date: November 13, 2012]
