My “Down Memory Lane” series continues with a friend, mentor and splendid writer Frank Soos. Frank was not only the guy I tapped to be my first guest on Northern Soundings, but regular listeners will know he frequently contributes book reviews here. This episode’s title refers to Frank’s abilities to not only write gracefully and compellingly about the human condition, but also to his hard work in forming new generations of writers. It was a joy to talk with him about his background and influences.
And Chris Lott on Katexic Clippings examines the word exegincy, a term seeing a usage uptick since the University of Alaska Board of Regents just declared financial exigency.
