If you could sum up Humor & Race (2009) in three words, what would they be?
They make we want to read their work.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
Since this is a taping of a conversation this question doesn't apply, Give it a listen and you'll enjoy, I'm sure of it.
Have you listened to any of Tod Goldberg’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Any and all of them, he's hilarious! He should host more of the conversations at the Festival of Books. I wish his work was available on audtiobooks.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The conbination of the authors is excellent, they interact off each other well.
Any additional comments?
I am going to find these authors in other media and keep watching for them on audtiobooks. Bring them back!
