Eli Attie, one of the most talented writers out there, is back to join Nate in a discussion about “Brooklyn: A Personal Memoir by Truman Capote,” a book he collaborated on with the long lost photographs that his father took of Truman Capote that are incredible. They also talk about Eli’s time working for Aaron Sorkin, his time working at the Gore campaign, and the love they share for the band Guided by Voices. Pick up a copy of next month’s book, “Geek Love” by Katherine Dunn! Once you’re done reading, call us at (702) 751-READ and let us know what you thought!

Nate brings you the first all Non-fiction episode and has the hilarious Nelson Franklin start things off by reading a Chuck Klosterman piece entitled “The Pretenders.” Then, writer, producer, and former political operative Eli Attie joins Nate in the studio to chat about being the campaign speechwriter through Gore’s concession of the 2000 presidential election, growing up in a family of readers, and some of the political books that he enjoys. Finally, Nate finishes things by playing two pieces of political theatre that he loves – Mr. Rogers going in front of the US Senate to defend PBS and Robert F. Kennedy’s speech after Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Get a head start on the next book which will be “The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.” by Adelle Waldman and send in your thoughts on the book at readingaloudpodcast@gmail.com.
