Blacklisting Myself interview in FrontPage Magazine

I was interviewed today by FrontPage editor Jamie Glazov, himself an author, on the subject of Blacklisting Myself and my general views on movies and politics. In the course of this, I read Glazov’s book, United in Hate, which I commend to you. It’s about the Left and has a rather unequivocal title, which underscores the author’s strong views. These are earned through Glazov’s personal story (he is the son of dissident Soviet doctors who risked their lives for their beliefs) that provides a potent and affecting subtext for the book. Back when I was on the Left, we used to say “the personal is political,” but these days when confronted with political/personal stories, the Left seems to run the other way.

By the way, for those who have asked whether my book will be available on the Kindle, the answer is yes. Unfortunately, however, the publisher has been given no no time frame. As we all know, the Amazon just goes on and on. (Incidentally, it just occurred to me that the Kindle may make paperback reprinting of books irrelevant. Duh.)
