- Greg Kot gets a memorable interview with Bono.
- Jonathan Rice gets cast as Roy Orbison in I Walk the Line.
On my radar for summertime fiction:
- Freddy and Fredericka, a new novel by Mark Helprin described as a satire about a future king and queen of England slumming in the States.
- Od Magic, the latest from Patricia McKillip, my favorite living fantasy writer. And she’s got another one coming too–Harrowing the Dragon.
- A Feast for Crows, by George R. R. Martin, one of my wife’s favorite novelists.
