CONNIE MARTINSON TALKS BOOKSWatch my interview (recorded April 11).  Connie’s been doing this for more than 25 years, and no one does it better.  She actually, really, seriously reads every page of every book before interviewing its author–and I think I can say without fear of contradiction that there isn’t a writer of prominence in America who hasn’t sat with her at least once.  This was, I’m pleased to say, my second time.  And I’m just as pleased to brag that Connie seemed to love L.A. ’56: A Devil in the City of Angels, which was what we talked about for half an hour.        Part One          Part Two
