If you’re arriving here after hearing my appearance on Weekend Edition Sunday, welcome! Just to give you a little background, I started The Millions in early 2003 when I was a bookseller at an independent bookstore in Los Angeles. I’ve since moved on from there, but the blog has stuck around. We now have seven contributors besides me, and we write nearly daily about books and other cultural topics.
If you want to look around, a great place to start is the notable posts on the right-hand sidebar. You can get to the archives by scrolling down to the bottom of the page.
Finally, in case you want to get more info on the books I mentioned during the segment, here are some links to the books on Amazon
(I haven’t heard the segment yet, so not sure if they edited any of these out):
- Ragtime by E.L. Doctorow
- Pastoralia by George Saunders
- East of Eden by John Steinbeck
- One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
- The Adventures and Misadventures of Maqroll by Alvaro Mutis
Thanks for checking out The Millions!
