Yes, Leonard Lopate asks lots of GREAT questions...
WHAT A PHONY! Couldn't you hear her dancing around questions she didn't want to answer? And how she apparently regrets writing about her husband's family's treatment of servants? If you don't want to talk about your book, why come on the radio? I won't bother to read this, even at the library.
