Whad'ya Know?: 04/01/13

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)Michael Feldman hosts an NPR talk show called Whad'ya Know? It was also the title of his 1991 memoir. I don't remember when exactly I acquired a copy of the book but I decided I should finally read it to clear it off my shelves.

Feldman broke his memoir into themes, writing pithy essays on pieces of his life — being a parent, being married, etc. He mixed in contemporary political and social commentary.

Unfortunately, reading the memoir twenty years after publication, much of the witty observation has become rather dated. I found the book rather tedious to read. The book is probably best suited to fans of the show.

Two stars
