BeschreibungBill O'Shaughnessy's back. Here's the third big book of interviews, editorials, essays, commentaries, observations, and just plain good talk from an authentic American voice. From the "bully pulpit" of radio, O'Shaughnessy's in the middle of everything: politics local and national; culture high and low and in-between; the media; and, most of all, the rich flow of ideas and opinion from what the Wall Street Journal calls "the quintessential community station in America." In this compelling and fascinating collection, O'Shaughnessy gathers interviews with everyone from Tony Bennett on the singer's art to Ed Koch on the art of politics. Essays and talks from luminaries range from Henry Kissinger to Larry King, Rudolph Giuliani to Tim Russert and Dan Rather. There are moving pieces on the impact of September 11, vivid sketches of movers and shakers, and provocative, deeply felt calls for protecting freedoms of the First Amendment. Mario Cuomo also supplies penetrating thoughts on how to restore justice and wisdom to America's political culture. From colorful sketches of local pols to intimate conversations with great writers and artists, Live! is an endlessly fascinating portrait of our time and place_marked as always, by Bill O'Shaughnessy's intelligence, insight, and eloquence.
