Louis Begley's Schmidt Steps Back

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Louis Begley talks about his latest novel, Schmidt Steps Back. It picks up 13 years after his last novel leaves off, on New Year’s Eve 2008, the dawn of the age of Obama. Schmidt’s affection for the young president-elect is boundless, and as he imagines a better day for his country, he dares to hope there’s one for him too.

Please thank Mr. Begley for his brilliant essay in The Times on Sunday. It meant a lot to my wife and I. And for being one of the few authors that understand males.
