In the Chicago Tribune, three-time NBCC winning novelist E.L. Doctorow reviews the latest memoir by the indomintable Studs Terkel, who won the NBCC’s Ivan R. Sandrof Award for lifetime achivement in 2005.

Member Chuck Leddy reviews the memoir of Egil “Bud” Krogh, who went to prison for doing Nixon’s bidding.

Over at there’s an audio download of NBCC finalist Mark Doty reading a poem about a birthday present he gave the late Stanley Kunitz.
