I'm about to run off to S.F. to have an onstage conversation with the great autobiographical comic-book writer Harvey Pekar -- but I just wanted to mention that tonight's TV program (at 7:30; repeated on Friday at 10:30 p.m.) features an interview with another fine writer: the charming British polymath Simon Winchester, whose latest book is A Crack in the Edge of the World: America and the Great California Earthquake of 1906.
This is a deluxe re-airing of a previously broadcast episode, and I hope and trust that it has aged gracefully -- like a fine wine, perhaps, only faster and with less cork.
