Alan Dershowitz Interview

October 10th, 2010 by Lewis Frumkes


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.

Nelson DeMille Interview

May 9th, 2010 by Lewis Frumkes


If you have even dreamed of being a writer you would probably like to have penned Word of Honor, or The Charm School, The Gold Coast, Plum Island, The Lion’s Game, or The General’s daughter which was made into a film starring John Travolta. .. . because this would make you one of the best-selling-authors of our time with over thirty million copy of your books in print and most in development as either films or television mini-series. Actually the man who did write these books is a modest soul who saw combat in as a war hero and was decorated with the Air Medal, The Bronze Star, and The Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry. Now my friend Nelson visits me on The Frumkes Show to discuss The Lion, his thrilling sequel to The Lion’s Game with an assassin so cool and frightening that I practically bit my nails to my elbows before finishing it. I invite you to meet the talented and funny Mr. Nelson DeMille. . . one of our best.

Joe Hill Interview

February 21st, 2010 by Lewis Frumkes


Joe Hill is not only the award-winning author of Heart- Shaped Box, 20th Century Ghosts, and now Horns, he is also a super-nice guy, who is bright, witty, and fun to talk to. He also writes comic books. For all of you who may be wondering is Joe Hill really the son of Stephen King and Tabitha King, the answer is yes he is, and on the Frumkes show he candidly speaks with me about his relationship with his distinguished father and mother. All I can say is if I were Stephen King I’d be proud as hell of this young man who is not only a loving and devoted son, but an outsized talent of the first magnitude. Imagine trying to mine the same genre as Stephen King and bringing to it a totally original voice and style. I picked up Horns and couldn’t put it down. The word dynasty suddenly seems apt.

David Baldacci Interview

November 21st, 2009 by Lewis Frumkes


true-blueDavid Baldacci’s “TRUE BLUE”, at this writing is the number one best-selling book in the nation. His other books “Absolute Power,” “Total Control,” “The Winner” and “The Simple Truth,” have also been best-sellers and main selections of the Book Of The Month Club. Each has sold millions of copies world-wide and been translated into dozens of other languages. Absolute Power and Total Control were major motion pictures and the newer books have been optioned and will probably follow soon.

the-book-of-liesBrad Meltzer is smart as a whip, and a provocative writer. His books are always interesting. You have probably read The Book of Lies; The Book of Fate; The Tenth Justice; The Zero Game; or The Millionaires: Brad just can’t stay away from the Best-Seller lists. Like Grisham, and Baldacci, Brad is also a former lawyer. I always enjoy it when Brad comes in from Florida and visits me.
