the-trials-of-zion

Super-lawyer Alan Dershowitz visits The Frumkes Show after having just returned from defending the Pope overseas and tells me he thinks he got a good result in this high-profile case. In any event as you know Alan is always brilliant, always, passionate, and always funny. He’s what I would call in Englicht an uber-mensch. During the interview we talk about his new best-selling thriller “The Trials of Zion,” just out from Grand Central Publishing as well as the real Middle-East. Few people know more about the Middle East and are able to crystallize the situation like Alan. . . don’t miss this one folks.

James Ellroy Interview

October 3rd, 2010 by Lewis Frumkes

the-hilliker-curse

Lee Earle Ellroy, or James Ellroy as you know him is one of our most unusual and acclaimed writers. Best known for The L.A. Quartet, The Black Dahlia, L.A. Confidential etc. Ellroy’s novels have been translated into film at a rapid clip. His style has evolved from from the classic noir of his early novels to what is generally referred to as postmodern historiographic metafiction. But it is on The Frumkes Show that he discusses with me his second memoir The Hilliker Curse. Trust me you are in for a ride. I don’t want to ruin it here in my introduction, but his memoir may be even more unusual than his novels. Sex, women, more sex, drugs, redemption. . . .Listen to the show you’ll understand.
