Michael Cart on the great American novel

podcastIn his current podcast, Michael Cart talks about a recent Publishers Weekly poll that asked, “What is the great American novel?” giving everybody 60 titles to choose from. He covers the top 12 (spoiler: number one is NOT The Great Gatsby). What would be your choices? If yours was overlooked, email Michael at mrmcart@sbcglobal.net and he’ll pull your titles together for a future podcast!

And then in a change of pace, Michael also looks at the world of the Sherlock Holmes canon – the big news is whether the Sherlock Holmes titles are out of copyright (this kerfuffle does not affect the licensing of the character on TV or film).
