The February 2020 edition of Literary Ashland was a little different from our usual routine. Given the uncertainty about our location, we didn't invite any guest. Since both Ed and I have new books coming out this year, we decided to spend the half hour talking about them. For those of you who may not know this, Ed Battistella teaches Linguistics at Southern Oregon University. He is the author, most recently, of Sorry About That: The Language of Public Apology. His new book, also published by Oxford University Press, is Dangerous Crooked Scoundrels: Insulting the President, Washington to Trump.
My next Vermeulen thriller Percentages of Guilt will see the light of day sometime this year. The current shutdowns due to SARS-CoV-2 and COVID19, the disease is causes, has thrown a wrench into the schedule. We'll see how that develops. In any case, give it a listen, you'll learn something about each of our books.
