Formatting’s a bit wonky this week, but what can I say …

Anyone who emails me the imprints of all the books listed (or houses if no imprint is available) will win the NPR Books Grid for the prior week that includes, in addition to the information below, interviewer, pub date, imprint, genre, post-interview Amazon ranking, pre-interview ranking (if the book was mentioned on Shelf Awareness and I was able to look up the number before the interview), and interview hyperlink.

* indicates the interview is a rebroadcast.

  2. Sabbath World on Fresh Air was a nice interview. Slate did a really cool series on the book. The Editors and author wrote blog entries to each other. and i’m a huge fan of Simon Johnson and James Kwak (13 Bankers). i rarely buy hardcovers but have seriously considered picking up this one to support their work.
