Tonight’s guest is David Gessner, author of several books, including Sick of Nature, The Prophet of Dry Hill, and Return of the Osprey, which was chosen by the Boston Globe as one of the top ten nonfiction books of the year and the Book-of-the-Month club as one of its top books of the year. His latest books, which came out this year are: The Tarball Chronicles: A Journey Beyond the Oiled Pelican and Into the Heart of the Gulf Oil Spill and My Green Manifesto, Down the Charles River in Pursuit of a New Environmentalism PLUS: Yom Kippur, Mormonism, Listener letters and News from the Dunes™.
Testicular waxing, a hundred crows all yelling at each other over a purported tennis match. Nothing whatsoever but they’re both on this weeks Anne Levine Show along with: Eco-burials Down Under, banning power boats in Cape Cod Bay, that Vander Sloot jerk, painting a 65 meter long phallus on a Russian bridge, HA HA Tony Hayward, and NO, that’s not a swarm of African Killer Bees – It’s a rabid pack of Vuvuzelas.
Songs included: a cool song by Beck.
Anne and Michael spend some time discussing the biggest disaster in their lifetime (the Deep Horizon Oil Gusher), Helen Thomas, Gary Coleman and the “Grim Eater”. Nestled amongst these discussions are topics such as Musical chairs with Bob and Ray, Billboards that smell like a barbecue, taking your new liver out for a spin and how much stuff you can smuggle into jail rectally. PLUS: what were Gladiators doing in York and what do you call a French guy with no arms and no legs in the English Channel?
Songs included are: Gasoline and Tell me something good.
