The Bob Edwards Show, Lauren Greenfield, Michael Cobb, and Daniel Pinkwater, July 24, 2012 | [Bob Edwards]

The Bob Edwards Show, Lauren Greenfield, Michael Cobb, and Daniel Pinkwater, July 24, 2012

Lauren Greenfield set out to make a documentary about David and Jackie Siegel, billionaires who were building the biggest house in America: 90,000 square feet, 10 kitchens, 17 bathrooms, a bowling alley, and an ice skating rink. But the story turned into an allegory about the American Dream after the economic crisis hit and the Siegel’s time share empire - created by taking advantage of people’s real estate dreams – crumbled.

Publisher's Summary

Lauren Greenfield set out to make a documentary about David and Jackie Siegel, billionaires who were building the biggest house in America: 90,000 square feet, 10 kitchens, 17 bathrooms, a bowling alley, and an ice skating rink. But the story turned into an allegory about the American Dream after the economic crisis hit and the Siegel’s time share empire - created by taking advantage of people’s real estate dreams – crumbled. The Queen of Versailles is now out in limited release. Greenfield won the U.S. Directing Award for Documentary Film at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

Next, one isn’t the loneliest number for author and professor Michael Cobb. Single: Arguments for the Uncoupled is Cobb’s treatise on single life that argues against the negative perception of single life in history and popular culture. He shares insights from his book and lifestyle with Bob.

Finally, we end today’s show with the musings and observations of children’s book writer Daniel Pinkwater. [Broadcast Date: July 24, 2012]
