Paolo Giordano Interview

April 24th, 2011 by Lewis Frumkes

the-solitude-of-prime-numbers

A prime number is a lonely thing. It can only be divided by itself or by one; it never truly fits with another.  In “The Solitude of Prime Numbers,” Paolo Giordano a 29 year old particle physicist turned novelist creates one of the more charming stories of two damaged protagonists that I have read in some time.  His prose is original and stylish, captivating, not to mention moving and powerful.  Giordano’s novel won the Strega award and has sold in excess of a million copies in Italy.  Join me as I talk to this modest yet talented young author about his novel and his life.

mobbed

Carol Clark is a hoot in addition to being an entertaining novelist and actress.  Her new book “Mobbed,” another in her Regan Reilly mystery series is fast-paced and amusing which is what differentiates her from her mother Mary Higgins Clark.  Mary is all suspense while Regan is more like Carol herself, clever but also funny.  Join Regan, er Carol and me as we cackle and carry on about life and her novel “Mobbed.”  Imus loves her, so will you.

Frank Wilczeck Interview

April 10th, 2011 by Lewis Frumkes

the-lightness-of-being

Frank Wilczeck won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2004 for work he had done on asymptotic freedom with the strong force. He was also one of the discoverers of electrochromodynamics, and anyons. The prize was awarded for work Wilczeck had done when he was 21 years old at Princeton. I spent some time with Frank talking about all the things on my mind about cosmology and origins, and Frank patiently answered me with thoughtful and articulate responses. He is bright and one of the few physicists who also has the talent to translate arcane mathematical equations and physics into language an intelligent lay person can understand. Please join us for this show. . . I think you will enjoy it.
