Best Book Ever

Jul 20, 2020

I'm a longtime fan of the thoughtful book reviews that my guest Marion Hill writes. He is possibly the most diverse reader I've ever met - veering around all genres, always willing to try something new and recommend unfamiliar authors and books. I was delighted that he agreed to join me today to talk about why "Memory and Dream" by Charles de Lint is the Best Book Ever.
