Here’s something neat for Throwback Thursday, an interview Stewart did for The Talks back around when the German edition of The Odds was published. You can listen to snippets of the conversation, too. The lineup of interviews is stellar — in film, the likes of Alicia Vikander, Anthony Hopkins, and Antonio Banderas, and those are just the A’s! LeBron James, Mick Jagger, there’s no shortage of star power on this site.
In case you missed this excellent episode of The Book Show:

Stewart O’Nan’s new book, Ocean State, has recently been released in the United States to wide acclaim. However, today we are going to look at one of his earlier books – 2001’s The Speed Queen. In a change from our usual format, this isn’t a book or an adaptation of a Stephen King text, but instead a novel that uses Stephen King as a character. King is the (unnamed but highly guessable) recipient of the last testament of Marjorie Standiford, mother, daughter, drug addict, sex addict, speed freak and apparent killer. On death row, who else but Stephen King would listen to her side of the love triangle that put her on a collision course with capital punishment?
