Chatting about Island

My buddy Rick Kleffel and I got together to talk about Island of the Mad. I love doing interviews with Rick, one of those interviewers who not only reads the book, but thinks long and hard about it.

He says:

…perfect summer fun, and chock-a-block with enough thought-provoking needles and actual history to pleasantly fill our minds. Mary Russell’s travels in the past manage to not just entertain the present. They illuminate it.

Our conversation is now up as a podcast–and also as a quickie ‘cast–here.  Enjoy!

    I’m so excited. I’m going away for a week on Saturday to a quiet, lakeside cottage on the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, Canada, and am Really looking forward to reading this book that I’ve been eagerly awaiting! Thank you Soooo much for writing it Laurie. 🙂
