Guest Picks: Chris Ware

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Cartoonist Chris Ware was on the show to talk about his graphic novel box set Building Stories. He shared his guest picks with us.

What have you read or seen lately (book, play, film, etc.) that moved or surprised you?

         Todd Solondz's film "Dark Horse"—It didn't surprise me, because everything he does is great, but it did profoundly move me.

What are you listening to right now?

          Morton Feldman's "For Philip Guston"
          Vladimir Martynov's "Come In"
          Philip Glass' 9th Symphony
          Arvo Part's 4th Symphony

What’s the last great book you read?

          Zadie Smith's NW

What’s one thing you’re a fan of that people might not expect?

        Jeez, I dunno...Leaf blowers? Or maybe the aforementioned Morton Feldman...

What’s your favorite comfort food?

          Vegan "meatloaf," my wife's squash lasagne.
