"Lists of Note: An Eclectic Collection Deserving of a Wider Audience" (Encore Presentation)
(Note: This show originally aired earlier this year.) On this edition of ST, an engaging chat with Shaun Usher, a writer, researcher, and blogger based in the UK. Usher tells us about his latest book, which he edited and compiled: "Lists of Note: An Eclectic Collection Deserving of a Wider Audience." Hailed in the British press as "beautiful and immensely satisfying" (The Observer) and as "1. Splendid. 2. Addictive. 3. Sumptuously produced with interesting photos and facsimiles" (The Independent), this entertaining book curates 125 charming, off-the-wall, surprising, and/or heartbreaking lists that have been jotted down over the centuries by many different writers for many different reasons.
