There is much to learn and enjoy . . . in this solidly entertaining book.—Publishers Weekly
And you can enjoy it for FREE. As a gift to all the listeners who have supported him over the years, Bob Edwards is making a downloadable copy of his new memoir, A Voice in the Box: My Life in Radio, available through major electronic retailers for free. “You can think of this as the ultimate pledge drive premium considering most public radio supporters already have plenty of coffee mugs and tote bags,” Edwards said.
Starting today and ending September 9 the book can be downloaded for free from:
The print edition will be available beginning September 21.
Edwards’ memoir describes his road to success, from knocking on station doors during college and working for the American Forces Korea Network to his work at NPR and induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2004. He presents sharp observations from years of collaboration with interesting colleagues, from Susan Stamberg, his co-host of All Things Considered and the first woman to anchor a nightly national news program, to Red Barber, a sportscaster whose four-minute weekly broadcasts attracted hoards of devoted fans. A Voice in the Box also recalls stories from his most memorable interviews–from Julia Child’s declaration that she preferred quarter-pounders over Big Macs to Norman Mailer’s admission that he fired off a potboiler solely to “pay the bills.”
UPK is proud to offer the newest addition to its library, A Voice in the Box, free to all of Edwards’ fans, radio devotees, and readers who like a good story.
