Fresh Air Weekend highlights some of the best interviews and reviews from previous weeks, as well as new program elements specially paced for the weekends. Our weekend show focuses on interviews with writers, filmmakers, actors and musicians, and often includes clips from live studio concerts. This week:
In memory of Hilary Mantel, Booker Prize-winning author of the “Wolf Hall” saga: The British writer, who died on September 22, wrote a trilogy of critically acclaimed historical novels about the life of Thomas Cromwell, one of Henry VIII’s most trusted advisers. Originally aired in ’12.
“Less” offers more in Andrew Sean Greer’s sequel to his Pulitzer-winning novel: Greer’s new comic novel, Less is wasted, is as funny and poignant as its predecessor. But comedy is also born out of pain, and Greer goes smooth deep.
The editor of ‘British Vogue’ wants his magazine to reflect the world he sees: Edward Enninful grew up in Ghana, assisting his mother in her sewing workshop. “For me, fashion has always been such an inclusive and beautiful thing,” he says. His memoirs are A visible man.
