David Rakoff

Writer and humorist David Rakoff's writing was witty and sardonic and very funny. He died in August at the age of 47. He was on the Lopate Show in October 2010 to talk about his book Half Empty, which won the 2011 Thurber Prize for American Humor. We’re replaying a selection of that interview now to remember him.
