There’s so much to be thankful for in National Public Radio’s programming, so many far-reaching interviews and discussions. Several of such moments have been captured in this volume of The Best of NPR. Author Stephen Ambrose reflects on his challenge to write the story of Richard M. Nixon--a man he didn’t much care for until he began to write about him. Glenn Gould biographer Otto Friedrich discusses Gould’s tormented genius and compares performances from Gould’s youth and those during his declining mental health. All the interviews reveal the secret to NPR’s exceptional quality: intelligent questions asked of real people. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
